Petsmart or even walmart in the pet section sells GAC. If you can pick up a phosban reactor or something like it and run a large amount of Carbon in it that would help.

I've got my fingers crossed!

Good suggestion on the GAC. That and PWC`s will help. Hope all goes well.

You may be in luck since the mop was dry. It would do a whole lot of absorbing of water and wouldn't release much back into the tank until it was almost saturated. If you wife got it out quickly enough it probably didn't leach to much into the tank. Really hope everything turns out ok for you.

Well Petsmart didn't have anything I was looking for and my LFS i normally go to is way across town..... Not enough TIME i didn't wan to waste anymore time by hurting them if there was any hard chemicals in the tank but yet again not having an ro/di unit hurts 2 but I went ahead and did a PWC and I just got done looks like they are doing ok as of right now they are swimming fine and hopefully everything is going to be ok..... I also matched u the water temp almost perfect so they would be into to much shock with everything that has happen to them today.... I will let you guys know in a few more hrs how they are doing....

Thanks everyone for the ideas and concerns

If this had happened to me I would be doing a PWC every day until I had completely replaced the water in my system.

I would be prepared to do another tomorrow. Keep an eye on your live stock and if things start to change be ready to do another. Testing your water is a good idea but who knows what could have gotten in there. I don't know if the test kits we use would find anything or not.
