Hi guys. Need some help. I went holiday for 3 days and now my tank population is almost gone. Day 1, someone accidentally poured almost the whole fish feed into my tank but did not or dunno how to clear them. Day 2. My fish are mostly dead. Day 3, I came back and found my angelfish floating and lying flat. It's long fins and feeler fins are all gone. Can consider a gonna too. Total, I lost 1 good looking angelfish, 5 rainbow fish, 12 white cloud mountains, 1 bristlenose, 2 Cory, 1 oto. Survivors only 2 more Cory and 2 oto. I'm not sure if they can last.

My tank has sky high ammonia now. I did test. It was always yellow colour. Now the test is bluish green. I did more than half tank change. But theres still ammonia though slightly better than before the water change.

What should I do? Carry on changing water now? Or wait and see if ammonia will go down. The water is cloudy but clearing cos of my water change. I also washed my filter using old tank water.

wash the whole freaking tank clean
place the left over living fish in a clean pail or tank seperatly, any fish u see die soon can just throw in the bin

Restart your tank will be better because leftover good will cause worm infestation.

So now all u can do is to bleach the whole tank > filter

After water change/tank servicing every Sat,I needed to run my AC as the one in the study room is underused.

I switch on for an hour or two and the water temperature lowers by itself.
