Uh Oh...Put liquid fertilizer meant for Reef Tanks in FW...

I reread the Kent Marine liquid plant suppliment & it says for Reef & Marine Tanks... :(
I could have sworn when I ordered it online it said safe for FW too, but how much damage have I done
putting in around 2 tsp to a 10G over the course of about a month?
The 6 plants & 2 fish look healthy, should I do a bigger water change just in case?

The other issue is what it may be adding to the aquarium. I've no idea what is in this product. I would suggest you contact the manufacturer (they have a website, undoubtedly with a contact email) and ask. Depending upon what it contains, a water change might be advisable.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

As far as I know, kent only makes "Pro Plant" fertiliser, and that's for freshwater aquariums...
