Hi, decided to disinfect my tank with bleach after an outbreak but i may have used to wrong bleach :(. The bleach i used is a lemon scented concentrate. It has sodium hypochlorite 4.2%, and sodium hydroxide 0.9%. It started foaming when i added it to the tank. How would i go about removing this from my tank?

You will have to rinse the tank out multiple times with fresh water until you can't smell the lemon or bleach anymore. Continue rinsing if you see any more foaming.
