    I had a fish tank with an angelfish in it of which i named carrot the fish tank began to grow good algae which made my grandfather decide to clean the tank without asking this has caused massive ph problems, as a result carrot is refusing food and floating on his side i know what has caused the problem but wish to know how to fix it i do not have any spare tanks available to me.

    Please do help as i have grown very attached to him as i raised him from one month old

    What are the current parameters? Cleaning algae from the tank shouldn't make a big problem. One problem I could see is whether your grandpa had some substance in his hands and arms that got into the tank, assuming he dove right into it.
