My water leaked out and I had to add regular water. Will my fish and plants die from the chlorine?

Hi,

I can use some guidance..........I woke up to find my talapia in only a few inches of water. Im not sure how long the fish have been without adequate water, maybe as long as eight hrs or more. When I found them they were still alive but struggling. So, I fill the tank with regular water from our hose, there was no time to gas off the water. Is there anything I can do to save them, they all look like there struggling pretty bad. Think the chlorine will kill tham and my plants?

The quickest option is to go to your local pet store and buy a bottle of liquid dechlorinator.  You should add warm water (the temp that your fish are used to) into a bucket and add the dechlorinator before adding the water into your system.
