If I was using a 5 gallon bucket, I would treat each 5 gallon and then add one by one. BUT... if running a hose or python to fill the tank on let's say a 25% water change... how do you do it? I want to say I would do the order of operations as follows: shut off my sump pump, drain out 25% of my display tank, add enough prime into the display tank to treat JUST THE VOLUME BEING ADDED, then turn on the tap water and replace the volume remove, start the pump. Or... would I add enough prime to treat the ENTIRE VOLUME OF THE TANK eventhough I'm only adding in 25% of the tanks volume in chlorinated water??? Thanks

I only add enough prime for volume being treated (new water) as the remaining water in-tank has already been treated and is dechlorinated. I add the dose from cap into stream of water going into tank. Been doing this for years and have never had any issues. Everyone has different methods and reasonings.
