Shoot

My dad and I were cleaning my sisters fish tank while she was at a friend's house (kinda to surprise her).
Anyway, we did it the proper way, were extremely careful with the fish and 2 frogs, and even cleaned the filter/pump.
When we were completely done, we reset the pump speed, which has an adjusting knob on it. By closing it, there is obviously slower movement of the water and vise-versa.
My dad set it to full speed/power, but I thought it was way too much for the little fish and half-inch frogs (it might as well have been a vortex in the tank). I lowered the speed till it didn't propel the water everywhere...BUT What I didn't know was that at the same time, I also slowed the speed at which it cleaned the tank.....

This afternoon we looked into the tank which was cloudy and were surprised to see the fish belly-up and went from a deep purple color to a faded black ( )
the frogs were just all lop-sided at the bottom.

What do I do now? Obviously a new fish and pair of frogs need to be bought, but they just aren't the same (kind of like dogs/cats).
She's pretty upset (I should have known that I closed the filter partially )

Shoot it with a .50 cal rifle, make a video, and post it here. I get the feeling folks would enjoy seeing that.

No, what you probably did was kill all the bacteria when you cleaned the tank and filter and an ammonia spike killed the fish. Actually cleaning it too good can be bad for the fish.
