Can I add water conditioner directly to the aquarium, even when not making a water ch

Various water conditioners offer to remove ammonia, and promote good growth, etc, along with neutralizing chlorine/chloramines. So can I put a few drops into a functional aquarium with the fish purely for the ammonia reduction and growth, etc, maybe once per week alongside using the conditioner for water changes?

Or would this be dangerous at all?

Much appreciated.

Ps. The title cut off the word *Change.

You can, it shouldn't cause any harm if we are talking about dechlorinators.

On the other hand it probably won't help anything in an established tank.

It won't harm anything, however if you're having ammonia issues then its much much better to do a water change instead of relying on co.conditioners.
