Conditioner stops being effective after a few days, so add for the whole tank, even for partial changes.

Tracy's right. Put it in your refill water before filling your tank.

Are you saying that chlorine, etc, reappears in previously treated water??

Not sure about the chlorine, but the etc does (ammonia and ammonium). And the heavy metals continue to oxidize and are never fully encapsulated.

Olympia can explain the relationship between ammonia and chlorine. I understand it, but not well enough to explain it.

(I wish I could remember the recent post where she explains it.)

You guys are way too smart! Now I have something else to worry about, lol!! So, to clarify, any time you do a water change, you put enough conditioner for the entire tank into the jug that you are using? What if you are topping off to compensate for evaporation? Same thing? Can you overdose a tank? What conditioner do you recommend? I have Prime... is that good?
