You may be right, but i have no way to do that.

Also, im doing my first water change tonight, did a %40, but im using a long hose and syphon i got from the store. Before when i had my 10g, i put the water cond into the bucket before i dumped it in, not i cant, i have to do it after i add the tap water, will that hurt the fish?

I've never had any problems with adding the conditioner after the water but I just add it as the tank fills now.Still no problems doing it that way either.

Agree, just squirt it in the tank when you start adding the new water, it will handle it.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
