Darn :(

kkenny112(9)December 14, 2008

Well my friends daughter came over to help make cupcakes for the holiday. We had the food coloring out and she thought it would make the fish tank water pretty if she dyed it blue. Thankfully no fish were in the 1.5 gallon carbon filterd tank. Could i use a bit of ( as in a few drops) of bleach or should i let the filter hopefully clean it or do i just change the water? I am not getting fish until christmas so hopefully it will be ready to go by then. Thanks for your help!!

Sorry for not seeing this earlier but yes do a full scale water change. Food color might dye the inside of the tank but is not toxic. I had an aquarium once that a young neighbor dropped several cough drops into. Those are toxic and it did kill the less hardy fish.
