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? :shock::-(

u've been using it for about a month without any problem. i think if it was harmful the fish anf plants would all be dead by now

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.

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