Exclamation i need help please! now

ok, today i knocked over my light getting ready for school. little did i know, the corallife digital thermometer fell into the tank. when i got home from school, the battery was exploded inside the thermometer. nothing in my tank seems ill except my green BTA is shriveled up. how should i remove the battery waste.

p.s. i changed the water yesterday so im trying to get enough RO water to do a quick change.

Outside of more water changes, adding some carbon is all I can think to suggest.

well, i have concluded that since the toxic dump was right next to my skimmers intake, it saved the tank. but my heater broke. FML. since i my thermometer obviously broke, i didn't know my temp was down to 73F!. coincidence or not, this is the worst day in my reefing career.

You can bring up the temp slowly and should be ok...maybe 2 degrees/day.
I would suggest a titamium heater.
