If you only have chlorine in your tap water, then it will have dissipated out by now. However, many municipalities are also using chloramine which does not out-gas so if it is present you need a water conditioner than detoxifies chlorine and chloramine.
If you change or add any water, regardless of fish, from now on use a conditioner. Chlorine (and chloramine obviously) will kill any bacteria now established, and there is bound to be some.
