Arrow Live Plants with a dead fish?

Ok so one of my fish died today and I have live plants. Is there a way to clean the plants or something. I will probably clean the gravel and the tank just in case, although he may have died from ammonia poisoning (from the cup from the store).

The plants are live, so there's no reason to really clean them... I'd say you could just take them out and gently wash them under the tap. Plants eat ammonia, so if that's why your fish died, then really no cleaning's needed for them.

Yeah. If it was ammonia poisoning you probably don't need to worry, but if he was sick with ich or something, you should gently rinse as Blackbird said.

Sorry to hear about your fish dying. :(
