Question water change replcement water

Hi folks I was just wondering what you preferences around replacement water when you perform a water change?

I am more than prepared to use the existing canister filter water or tank water to clean the filter bits in a bucket, but I am hesitant to connect up the python to the faucet and just let it go into the tank while desperately trying to throw water conditioner in there.

Do most folks pre-condition the new water in buckets first? Or do you think it is ok to do the above?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks

Just dose your water conditioner and add the water from the tap. It's no biggie.

Gotcha, cheers Flint. super cautious of maintaining the good bacteria and non-stressed fish. but I guess there is enough existing water with the newly added conditioner to sort it out.

thanks

BB doesn't live in the water column at an extent that will do your cycle any harm even if you change all of the water. That shouldn't be a concern ever.

Yup, I just dose the tank then refill with my Python. Been doing that for many years with no issues.

Yup. I use a syringe and drip the water conditioner on top and and fill. No issues and I have done up to 75% water changes this way.
