Light bulb exploded into tank

Hello all, I have a 25gal sorority with 7girls and a huge temporary dragon gobbi (he's going into my boyfriends tank once it's done being set up).

I don't have a lid so to light the tank I've been having a desk lamp hang over it and today the light bulb exploded into the tank.

I took the girls out and got every piece of glass and bulb out that I could (the bottom is almost bare and I searched hardcore with a flashlight) and went ahead and put the girls back, but I'm wondering if it's going to do any damage to the girls or water??

My gobbi also likes to move the rocks around, but I don't have anyway to get him out of the tank or anywhere to put him once he's out...

If there are any immediate for sure dangers please let me know and if there is anyway to get more glass out?? Will they go up a syphon??

Any advice would be helpful, I have no where else to put the girls minus a trash can so that's not preferred...

What kind of bulb was it? If incadesent the coating inside the bulb is a powder. I don't know what it is but could be an issue.
