Super Quick- maybe emergency!

My son just dumped half a bottle of Blackwater Extract and half a bottle of Leaf Zone into our 20G! It was noticeable orange. I did as much of a WC as I could manage, about 80%? I was able to get everyone out but have no way of heating them, unless I float them, and all my containers are used by my sick girls I just bought. I have back to back clinicals and class today and tomorrow, so except for late tonight, I won't be able to do a thing til late Thursday. What else can I do!?

ETA- it's planted, about 5 plants. Would it help if I added plants???

No, with water. You want to dilute the product as much as possible.

Gotcha.

After the first 80% change, it looks crystal clear, no tinge at all. Do I still need to do a 50%?

I estimate it was about 3 capfuls of the BW Extract and about 1/4 cup of the Leaf Zone.

I honestly don't know what leaf zone is, what is the regular dosage?

It's plant food. Dosage per bottle is 5ml per 10 Gallons. And I didn't dose it this week if it matters.

So it od'ed about ten times the recommended dose. I would try at least another 25% wc but would like someone else to weigh in.

Ugh, and now I notice my male betta D'Argo is super bloated, and I ask my son and he finally admits he fed them "a little pinch" too. I just don't know what he put in it. I can't do another WC right now, I have to do my stuff for class, as I have to get up at 4:30am. I have 5 pages of paperwork to do. I am so upset. :(

the blackwater wouldn't hurt, i don't think. x: it's the plant food i'd worry about

as for D'Argo being bloated, just fast him for a day. should slim him back down just fine.
