The chlorine in water kills the good bacteria in filters so you need to add it before adding the fresh water

I think all of them work. I have never heard of any brands having a reputation of not working or not being recommended

I personally use the stuff sold for ponds, its the same except its much more concentrated (the one i use uses 2.5ml for 40g) and works out loads cheaper than the stuff sold for tanks

i also use the same brand all the time(top fin) i think the only thing to watch for is that it also removes chloramine and heavy metals as well as chlorine
