Red face water changers & chlorine

I am doing an in-fish cycle and having to change water daily. If I buy a water changer how do i handle the chlorine? do I empty out all the old water, then add conditioner or fill back up before using the conditioner? and how much water is safe to do at one time this way?

Just dose the tank with the conditioner as you're filling up. Dose for the entire volume of the tank rather than just the amount you're changing. I.e. if you're doing a 50% water change on a 20g tank; dose 20g worth of conditioner rather than 10g.

On that note, I wouldn't do more than 50% changes at a time.
