So I went to work at 3.30 and no one told me anyone was throwing a party so I left home and all my medicine by my QT. I came back and a group of children broke my glass lid and let it fall in the tank. All fish were fine but then they dumped my whole bottle of keneplex and left it in the tank So I'm doing a water change. Will althis negatively impact my fish in any other way?

Ugh kids are the worst people ever.... Jk, I'd blame whoever was supposed to be watching them... I'd do a very large water change for sure

Should be fine if you do a water change and run your skimmer on max. Short term the most dangerous part is the ammonia. However good news is our tanks naturally fix that. You will probably see a spike in nitrates in the end and the inside of the glass will look fantastic (kidding). Hopefully the water change and skimmer take out the dyes and other chemicals.

Update. As expected ammonia levels spiked real high today. i also notice ick symptoms starting to appear again. you guys think that i should put some prime to help reduce ammonia for now. i literally ran out of salt and the nearest LFS is an hour away and their all closed and when i get the salt, do a large water change/ add more carbon to remove prime and redose copper (the water changes and carbon removed all the copper and i got 0 reading so no false positive on the ammonia test).

So what do you think about running carbon as a filter for your aquariums?
