I did my first water change and forgot to take the chlorine out of the water my platies where like that for about a day and half. I only did a 25% water change of a 60 gallon tank. Will my fish be ok?

Do another 50-75% WC and add the declorinator for the entire volume of the tank
I added declorinator earlier today for the volume of the tank do I still need to do a water change

I think your fish will be fine.

I wouldn’t bother with another water change just yet, unless you are seeing a spike in ammonia or nitrite. The prime you added a 1.5 days later should do the trick. Test the water for ammonia and nitrite for a couple of days. If it’s good, then your good.
