You guys helped me with my 9gallon with pigmy cory’s & guppies recently. And today while I was grocery shopping somehow my teenager tossed her sisters phone and hit shattered my tank!! Within minutes I was home my daughter had gathered all the guppies and 5/7 corrys. While I gathered another tank she found 2 more but they were out for awhile. Alive but one took a moment to move.
I am heartbroken for the little guy.
What I did was move all the substrate and deco into 20g long the sponge filter and pulled out a small HOB filter and shoved it full of the rings and foam from the back of the fluvalflex9.

Stole some water from my other 10g and filled the rest with new water treated api stress coat ( treated for 10 gallons maybe a touch more ?)
Put all the deco and plants in and put all the fish in.
The LPS is closed but should I run off in the morning and get some tetra safe start plus and give it a dose?
what else can I do for the fish? Does it do me any good to test the water tonight? Photos are before and after.

Im sorry you lost one, but it could have been so so much worse. To have a tank break and only lose 1 fish is really lucky. Unlucky altogether but usually people lose everything as they dont know it happens until too late.

You did nothing wrong, it was a horrible accident, but was not your fault.

Id pick up safe start and Prime just to be safe in case your cycle is affected. Itll protect your fish from cycling.

Thank you :( your absolutely correct it could have been worse fingers crossed I don’t loose anymore.
so you still think no tetra safe start plus? Just watch and do wc as needed?
