Do you have any SW mixed up and ready for a PWC handy?

Was the mop right out of a bucket with soap?

I trust your wife was able to get it out quickly?

Does your wife know how to mix up water for you? She could get some started and you could finish it up when you got home and do a major PWC. Hopefully she was able to get it out quickly and not much got into the water. Soap is a bad thing in a fish tank. I really hope your tank is ok.

If this were my tank, run a huge amount of carbon and at least a 50% if not eventually 100% water change. I agree, have your wife make sw for you.
