I use the python brand vs the aqueon, works the same. I just use a dechlorinator (prime) and only treat the water volume I change instead the actual tank volume size. I've done this for years. The water in the tank has already been treated so why treat again. I get longer use of the product.

Does that mean you can't have too much dechlorinator?

You definitely can, but it would be fairly hard to do. like I said prime can be safely dosed at 5x the recommended dose, says so on the bottle

I had my water tested at Petsmart. I HAVE some strips that came with the goodies the guy gave me when I bought the tank & have been using them, but was leery of them. Everything always showed to be in the ideal range & nothings EVER ideal when I mess with it. Next time I hit Petsmart I'll get some Seachem & Prime, & pick up a test kit. Thanks for the help! Rick.

If severely overdosed, dechlorinators can reduce the amount of dissolved oxygen in a tank. Keyword: severely.
