Exclamation Too Much Seachem Flourish!

I was trying to give the plants in my 10g a little Seachem Flourish because they're pretty much half dead... It says on the bottle "One capful per 60 gallons" so I gave one of the 2 exactly that much, but on the second one my dog barked and scared me and I dumped at least two and a half capfuls in! I just did an 80% WC and the water was a light brown when dumped in the tub- yesterday it was clear when I did a WC. It looks okay for now and Pigg and Atlas are oblivious, but I'm really worried this will screw up the whole tank! I'm testing the water soon, I have to eat dinner...

What can I do? Will this kill them?

I would cross post this in the plant section. Probably more people that know something about this will be there. Just a suggestion.

Isn't this there...? Dang it, I put it in the wrong one! Do you know how I do that?

I don't think it would kill them. I always overdosed my Seachem Flourish (too lazy to get out my syringe and measure) and nothing ever happened.

The Seachem range of fertilisers is pretty diluted and weak so I would say you would need to overdose massively to get a negative effect.

Seachem Excel is the one that can be harmful to fish if overdosed.

Thank you so much, they seem to be just fine :) I'll do another change tomorrow, though, just to be safe.
