I doubt it. That is common, many times I've done the same.

I confirmed that it was the amqual that poisoned the water. I tested my tap water and it was ammonia free, then boiled some water and let it sit for a couple hours still ammonia free, then I added the amqual and waited a couple hours and it tested positive... at least I found out now before I killed the whole tank
