Well most of us here in the SW arena don't use a declorinator, We use RO/Di water which has all that removed. But when I do use tap water for a qt or something I use stress coat, or jungle "start right".

If you need something for a quick topoff your best bet would be to boil the water for 5 minutes, then cool it and add. The chlorine/amines will evaporate out quickly.

RO/DI here too, but on my FW tanks I use tap water treated with Prime.
