Unhappy [HURRY] So Much Effort, Brainless...

I may have, well, did, set up my 29 gallon with 6 inches of water. I was being stupid and squirted a bunch of Betta Revive into the tank, and it is very very blue.
This was going to be my breeding set up, and I wasn't sure if the [possibly overdose] of the medicine will kill my fish, or cause spawn deformities.
It took me 2 days to carry all the water back and fourth to the tank, and I messed up with the water that I did have, and am not looking forward to possibly doing it again.
Please tell me if the medicine can hurt my fish, thank you!

The ingedients of revive from what I found on the internet :
Ingredients:
Water, neomycin sulfate (<10%), methylene blue (<0.5%), proprietary polymer mixture, buffers, EDTA, malachite green chloride (<0.01%), cyanocobalamin and electrolytes.

honestly I dont know what it does to fry I dont dose my tanks but honestly the overdoes could kill your fish and possible your fry I would suggest just starting the water over...

I've only had luck curing fish with BR, and the only ones who died in it had horrible cases of dropsy... so it was pretty much too late for them anyway.

Though it is a lot of medicine... uh... may I ask why you put it in there in the first place?
How many gallons of water did you get in there? I'm not good at calculating it from knowing 26g tank and 6" of water. |D
It's just one drop of BR per pint... it is possible you didn't overdose, but I need to know how many gallons you put in.

I also don't know what it would do to fry, but baby guppies have been put in th stuff when they were acting oddly.

Add-on: You can put 8 drops in one gallon. You have the little fishy thing as a dispenser for it, right?

Another edit: You might also can dillute it by adding an extra inch of water, if you can stand that for breeding. Or take out half the water, put in new. That should really dillute it... ... I'm still trying to figure out why you put it in there. >>

I'm not sure if it would hurt fry or not, but I know that it permanently stains fabric, so I dunno if it's okay to have something that strong in a tank with eggs and fry.
However, if you have the correct dosage in, the water is very, very, very blue. It makes my cellophane look like he's baby blue. :P

the water being very blue sounds un-natural and probably wouldn't be good for sensitive fry.. i'd changed the water
