I picked up a few of those plant bulbs that you just drop in your aquarium from Petco to see if they actually work. I was wondering if I should add water dechlorinator to the tank before I add them.

Have you been dechlorinating the water as you add it to the tank? If you have there should be no need to add extra dechlorinator.

I set the tank up today and wanted to know if I should add them after I add water dechlorinator. Can they be in un-treated water? I have dechlorinator but I wanted to get another kind since it makes the water cloudy.

If it is PLANTS only and there isn't any life (FISH) then NO.

If there are FISH yes.

I would suggest Prime (price per dose is very cost effective)

I just put them in a container of water I let sit overnight. I want to give them a chance to sink. And I'm planning on picking up water dechlorinator this weekend. And btw I think they where the Start Right tablets made by Jungle. Wheneve I added them to my tanks they always made the water cloudy a short time later.

I have heard very bad things about those but never used them myself. I have Nutrafin Aquaplus, which I really like.
