Sticky out in my tank

Thanks to my 2 year old, almost an entire bottle of sticky out got poured into my 20g tank. Needless to say, all my fish are dead. I had quite a few plants in there as well as some driftwood. They are currently soaking in some clean, dechlorinated water. Do you think I can still salvage the plants, driftwood and gravel from my tank w/o causing harm to future inhabitants? Or should I start over from scratch?

Up to you, but personally, I would restart. I wouldn't wanna take the risk.

plants and gravel should be restarted for sure, driftwood may be saved if you do some intense scrubbing and soaking, though just getting a new would be easier. sorry for your loss.

I would consider somehow putting a lock on your tank to prevent any future destruction if possible.

Thanks for the input - I'll scrap everything and restart.

And yes, my husband and I already planning on looking into ways to prevent another accident before we get more fish.
