yes I have a jewelers scale as well which is what I use to make up solution. I just don't want to have to pull the scale out every time I need to dose sodium thiosulfate. So I make a concentrated solution stick it in an old dechlor bottle and simply dose that to the tank measuring out mL to gallons, which I find easier then messing with the scale so much.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

Yes it is very cheap and definelty my favorite dechlor as well. its simply the most basic way you can dechlor with no other additives. I'm not sure how your stuff comes however mine is crystals that are pretty large. Some weighing over a gram each which may be why I find i harder to weigh out.

I mentioned before I don't like to go by standard dosing instructions but I know many prefer the ease of them. Rather I like to determine how much chlorine is present then dose accordingly. Typically when I bother to use a chlorine test however tap water barely registers and I decide whatever and don't even bother removing it lol. As you add untreated water to a tank it is diluted by the exsisting water and both chlorine and chloramines are quickly exhausted in a aquarium, especially planted ones as they bind to organics.
