Dechlorinating water for WC

Hi all,

Apologies if this is a stupid question, but when doing a water cycle, do you dechlorinate the water you're adding to the tank before you put it in?

This is not something I thought massively about till a minute ago.

Cheers!

Yes always do. I have jugs set aside that I put water in and add Prime to it and let them sit at room temp before adding it.

No stupid questions here. Yes, always dechlorinate any water you add.

I use Prime made by Seachem it removes Chlorine, Chloramine, Ammonia, and detoxifies Nitrite and Nitrate and provides the fish with slim coat. The thing I like about Prime is it uses a lot less the most water conditions out there that I have used.
