 Karthick.
 Just  ask  your  Lfs  for  a  pack  of  hypo.  Its  the  same  sodium  thiosulphate  in  cristal  cube  form.  Your  LFS  might  not  know  about  sodium  thio...  
 hypo  is  commonly  known  name  of  sodium  thiosuphate.  Drinking

 Yes,  Its  very  cheap  &  effective.  So  far  there  has  been  no  problems  found  to  my  plants  &  fish  due  to  this.
 
 I  normally  buy  a  bottle  of  around  20  Rs  which  lasts  for  a  month  or  two,  I  normally  do  partial  change  of  water  on  alternate  days.

 Karthick
 
 Use  about  2  granules  for  a  gallon  of  water.
 
 I  put  in  around  8-9  granules  in  our  normal  sized  bucket  of  water.  Dip  my  hands  in  the  water  rotate  it  clock  wise  and  anti  clockwise  and  while  doing  so  remove  a  mug  full  of  water  and  pour  it  into  the  swirling  water  I  do  it  for  around  5   minutes  then  leave  the  water   for  around  15  minutes  then  before  i  use  it  in  the  tank  again  disturb  the  water  using  my  hands.  Till  today  I  have  not  had  a  problem
 
 Please  take  care  that  your  hands  are  clean  with  no  soap  oil  or  other  residue.  clean  clean  clean  wipe  wipe  wipe  wipe  again  and  again  till  you  are  satisfied.  then  do  this.
 
 Or  else  store  water  in  a  drum  and  run  an  airstone  for  24  hrs  the  chlorine  will  disappear.  Smile

 @Karthick   ,  What  is  the  size  of  your  tank  and  how  much  water  you  changes  for  this  planted  tank  ?
 
 Adding  anything  in  aquarium  which  is  not  required  will  do  more  harm  to  your  fishes  and  plants  .  Since  this  is  your   planted  tank  i  don't  think  you  may  be  doing  very  big  Water  change  .  So  how  much  hypo  to  add  in  water  during  WC  is  depends  upon  how  much   water  you  are  replacing  with  new  water  in  tank  and  that  too  if  your  incoming  water  contains  Chlorine  .
 If  you  are  using  bore  well  or  well  water  there  is  no  need  to  add  anti  chlorine  .
 If  you  are  using  stored  water  ,  no  need  to  add  anti  chlorine  .
 If  you  are  doing  minor  water  change  ,  no  need  to  add  anti  chlorine  .
 
 We  should  respect  all  chemicals  and  need  to  be  used  correctly  without  harming  our  fishes  or  plants  .  Any  chemicals  added  more  then  the  actual  dosage  will  harm   your  Aquarium  sooner  or   latter  .  
 
 Adding  hypo  more  then  the  required  will  turn  your  water  milky  .
 Over  dose  ,  over  a  period  of  time  will  have  gill  problems  to  your  fishes  ,  discus  babies  dies  due  to  suffocation  due  to  over  dosing  of  anti  chlorine.

 Yes  ,  you  can  use  De-  Chlorinated  or  Stored  water  for  Discus  tank  ,  but  pl  note  water  parameters  of  RO  water  and  tap  water  will  be  different  .
