Help!

OK i want to start this thread by saying I hate my friends

I had a little party sat night

well after everyone crashed one kid stayed up a friend of a friend drinking

I woke up the next day and my tank is covered in fish food and the water is cloudy

Well I didn't even shower or brush my teeth i drained the tank and sucked up all the food i could.. I'm sure the kid was glad he left before i woke up...

Well I did a 70% water change just to get all the food out.. and i refilled my tank. a few hours later I cant even see my fish the water is so cloudy..

I quickly set up my 10 gallon and move ALL my fish into it I know its not cycled but i figured they may have a better chance hanging in there till i can get the other tank sorted..

It looks a little clearer this morning and I haven't had time to test the water before work

anyone else ever have this issue

any advice please

Yes,
A child who's a patient of mine decided to "feed" the fish and ended up dumping the entire can of Omega one into my tank...He came into the room and told me that he thought he had overfed the tank. So I came out and the tank looked like a blizzard. The fish were munching away and munching away...
Shut down filters vacuumed the tank...there was about a half inch of food covering the bottom. Did a 50% water change with the vacuum...came to my office the next day...did another vacuum and 50% water change. 2 days later a 30%. I lost no fish...but I did loose a patient.
