I'm really sorry about your fish, as well. Let us know if you find a way to remove the soap, I'm sure someone will be able to tell you, but I sure haven't found an answer.

I would believe pwc would be best to get any soap chemicals out of the tank (as well as using activated charcoal).

I know a guy that his wife sprayed windex around the tank. The tank had a cover, just the mist managed to get inside the tank. Within hours EVERYTHING in the tank was dead.

Are you sure that sponge was clean? By "clean" you mean you used it to clean bathrooms, then washed it clean, there might be some of your problem.

I dont know how actually "clean" they come in the package, but I do rinse all that type of stuff off before I stick it in.
