Lid on bottle?

Thinking out loud here......

Fill black tank up with water and see if bottle will float around on top. Hold toilet Valve open , water turned off, and see if you can see it. Coat hanger!
Or rod you use to pull down your awning.....

one of those pincher arm things used to pick things up from the floor.

I would not leave it in there if at all possible

How big is bottle? I'm guessing it's too big to come out the tank drain. Lots of 90* elbows in pipe... Won't make the turn.

You are probably gong to have to get it out the same way it went in...

Holding tank is pretty big in size 4x4, perhaps.... You are gong to need long wire that can be moved around to bottom surface of the tank and reach into corners that you can't see from hole in toilet.

Think plumbers snake that can be extended and manipulated in diffrent directions

An electricians fish tape ( has hook on end ) could be an option as well

Try draining tank again so that it's completely empty. Get right tool, and start fishing around.

Maybe dealer time.
