Mu daughters school has a fish tank that was donated to them as a memorial for a child who passed away while attending school there. It has been lacking proper maintenance for a while because no one there knows how to take care of it. I did not personaly know the child in which it was dedicated for but I felt really bad that it has dropped from the grand tank that was donated to the shape it is in.
I was able to get donations from fellow hobbiests in my area for items needed to fix this tank back up.
I am going armed with what I have donated my self along with what I recieved from friends today to get this fish tank back in shape in the morning.
Its gonna need at minimum a 75%water change then alot of love and cleaning.
I couldnt immagine loosing one of my kids so young. I wanna make this little angel in heaven proud of his fish tank. Sorry for double and side ways pics this is some of the things donated.
The test kit is brand new!

Worked on the schools tank for 5 hours today. Had to do two water changes but now test readings are
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 60
Ph 7.6
I couldnt get pics because my phone wasnt working right but it looks alot better and atleast I got the ammonia down.
The nitrates are still too high but I will get um down more on the next water change.

You are a truly generous person, having lost a child myself I would be very sad to see this happen to a memorial. Well done
