Questions About Water Changes

I just did a 50% change in my 10 gallon filtered tank.

1) How much water conditioner should I use? Do I put enough for 5 gallons or do I condition for the full 10 gallons?

2) How long should I wait before putting Gyarados back in the tank?

ETA: Dang! Put this in the wrong forum.

Use a full dose of the treatment for each water change, no matter how much you change out. You want to make sure the temps in the cup and in the tank match, so float the cup in the tank for a bit until it happens, 10-15 mins would be safe.

Thank you. I guess I was mostly curious if I needed to wait for the filter to cycle the new water I just put in. I am guessing I don't really need to wait that long because of the conditioner.
