Ack Jenn!

I was always afraid of something like that happening when the kids were little...food.. or pennies..or soap to "see the bubbles" so I had cabinet latches on the stand and canopy on the big tank as well as put the food away out of sight and out of mind. I know they *knew* they weren't supposed to touch it but my kids tended to give in to temptation too often ;)

Like Ray, not knowing how big the bottle is, you might want to take the wait and see approach but I'd keep a close eye on it and have water and carbon at the ready. Watch the skimmer too and make sure you use a baster to get the stuff caught in the rocks so you can syphon it out with the water change.

I also don't know what kind of load you are carrying in your tank. If it were my tank, I'd probably just gear up and do the water change anyway. Water change is easier than battling hair algae or cyano :(

That's good news, Jenn!

LOL about the fish "bath"; I'll bet your Mom was fit to be tied. My sis always wanted to give everything a bath when were were kids-we caught her giving the kittens a bath in the horse trough, giving a 4-week old sheltie pup a bath in the toilet (it almost drowned!) but the topper was when she gave the fire bellied newts I kept in a fish bowl a bath in the sink- with very *hot* water and soap. Sigh. Kids! ;)
