Without knowing exactly what killed the fish, this is difficult to answer. Have you no idea at all about the problem?

hydrogen peroxide, get a bowl of it and dip the plants then rinse them off under the tap afterwards. it will stress the plants but kill everything except snail eggs and some algae.

H2O2 is hydrogen peroxide, usually available as a 3% solution.. usually you can find it in the first aid section in the supermarket.
