Besides chlorine you have chloramines in the city water supply to make it safe to drink.... (if you are in the USA)-chlorine you can gas out in about 48h-24h with an aerator....but chloramines are not a gas and you have to add a dechlorinator to make it fish safe...its ammonia and it is deadly to fish...so aging the water won't help....best to hold off on water changes until you can get the needed dechlorinator...I would also stop feeding the fish especially if the tank is due for a water change and it will be awhile before you can get the needed dechlorinator......
