 as  much  as  i  know  Sod.  thiosulphate  is  a  very  active  and  photo-sensitive  compound.  Sodium  thiosulfate  will  detoxify  chlorine  but  will  not  detoxify   polychlorophenols  or  chloramins  .  Sodium  thiosulfate  is  a
 substance  that  itself  is  rather  easily  oxidized  by  mere  exposing  to  light.  So  only  halides  or  such  highly  ionic  compounds  can  react  with  it.  If  your  water  has  ONLY  chlorine  then  you  can  use  Thio  but  chlroine  in  chloramine  form  is  more  harmful  to  fish  which  will  NOT  be  removed  by  it.  I  dont  know  how  harmful  chloramine  is  for  plants  but  about  fishes  i  am  sure..  so  using  commercial  dechlorinators  are  safer  in  my  opinion

You  can  use  TETRA  AquaSafe  or  OCEAN  FREE  Anti  Chlorine.

Now  a  days,  the  market  is  flooded  with  duplicate  Rid-All  medicines.  Beware!

 Abhi,
 
 If  you  are  worried  about  Fishes  ¬†or  if  the  tank  is  planted  less,  then  u  can  use  Sodiumthiosulphate  ,  otherwise  there  is  no  need  for  it  in  a  Planted  Tank  if  your  tank  is  planted  fully..
 
 Regds
 Raghu.
