If you were to do a bucket/bottle method, then you would just treat the fresh water being added.
Father Knows Best but Abbey knows everything! I once knew everything, then I asked one question.

i use a hose that is connected to my fauct to fill up my tank during water changes. Its much easier for me to do so on my 55 gallon tank. Also I only add enough conditioner for the amount of water being added. Usually I do a 50% water change so I usually add enough conditioner for 25 gallons into the stream of water coming out of the hose. This might be wrong as Abbeysdad pointed out but never seem to have a problem with doing it this way.

I always add just above the amount of water conditioner to the tank for the amount I am replacing but not usually the whole thing. I also do about 3 tanks at the same time with the method I posted a bit faster then going one by one just got to remember not to forget anything on any of the tanks I can do a water change in 45-60 minutes on all three by myself, or about 30-40 mins with help.
