Some advice on tank situation
I was out of town for a few days and came back today to a tank of stinky dead fish. My hydor 300 watt heater got stuck on high...my fishies cooked. This is the second one that has failed on me the past several years. The previous time, it was a full tank of discus that got cooked. This time, it's a community tank of various tetras, cories, and other clean up crews...
What I need some help with is to figure out what I need to do with the tank. Do I need to completely tear the tank down and throw away all the plants? Basically start afresh?
It is a planted tank. I have managed to do plenty of water changes this afternoon to clean the tank up as much as possible but there still seems to have this film of grease/oil from the dead fishies that I can't completely get rid of.
Thanks in advance!
