I have 5 tanks that range in size from 10 gallons to 100 gallons, and---
they all get 50% water changes every week. I used a
python to drain and refill
the tanks, and once the water is drained, I immediately add water
back in along with the water conditioner. I don't think aged water
is absolutely necessary unless you have an issue with ph
fluctuations. Fortunately I don't have that problem. __________________________________________________

Wow, I cannot imagine doing all those water changes every week!
In my 29 gallon, I change five gallons each week. I will add the >de-chlorinator and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes before putting it in my >tank.
Haven't noticed any major issues at all since I've been doing this. Like >someone else indicated, the main reason to let it sit overnight is to let
the temperature even out with that like the aquarium water. However, if you >use a heater in the aquarium and it is different than room temperature, then >this negates the idea of letting it sit overnight.
I've also read that when you let it sit overnight, it will also break down >the chlorine and other chemicals so the actual de-chlorinator chemical isn't >needed.
