RIP Bill and (probably) Sookie

while my son was taking a nap this morning i was doing a water change on their tank. my son woke up so i started hurrying to finish, and didn't pay enough attention to the temperature of the water. it was too warm, and when i put Bill back in, he died after about a minute Sookie's still alive, i put her in a proper temperature tank until the water cools off, but she's acting heat-stroked and i don't know if she's gonna make it

I'm so sorry :(
Make sure the water is the right temp, even slightly cooler will help soothe any burns she may have (I wouldn't go lower then 74*F) and see how she fares over the next few days.
Sometimes they make it after being in hot water, sometimes they never recover.. unfortunately there isn't anything you can do other then keep her comfortable.

Wish you the best..
