redcross emergency help needed

Did a stupid thing last night, I just got home from work and I turned on tap to add just a little bit of water into my tank.

problem is I went upstairs and forgot to come back down. wife discovered only in the morning my tank has been overflowing whole night.

I lost a BD, but noticed my arowana seem to have been hit hard
would appreciate advise from bros here.

I dosed with Seachem safe. then added some more aeration.
what else can I do? I also added a little bit of salt.

my aropwana has turned pale and seem to be gasping for air, he does swim but I am worried . hoping he pulls through.

any other think I can do?

Don't think there's anything much you can do already.
I would have done the same.
Netting them out and isolate them in smaller tanks might further stress them out.
Hopefully everything turns out OK for you!

Bro Squid, continue the aeration to the tank. No wc for the time being.

Hope that your aro will come around in no time.

Just be patient.

Thanks bros so far
My arowana seem to have recovered, rays also more active now . Breathing also seems to be normal.

Still can't believe what happened

The bb very strong. Untreated tap water also cannot kill them.

is the chlorine levels in Philippines relatively lower than in SG? or were you perhaps adding the water at a slow rate.
