Thanks for your reply....

My son is 2 - did nt know he can open the door that leads to the sump which is where I keep all the fish things.

Do you by chance have a QT tank? If so you may want to try and move some fish over to it while sorting out the DT just in case. Other than that I can't help, sorry.

Your ph can go up to 14. This is extremely toxic. A level of 14 is like what drain uncloggers are. Your ph isn't most likely that high but do a massive water change

Glad to hear it came out well. In most unfavorable circumstances or emergency situations the first thing to do id PWC`s. This should lessen the effect of what happens to the tank. Hope all continues to do well.
