DiY CO2 mix in tank, anything else I should do?

The other day my cat knocked over my DiY CO2 bottles and about 500 or 600 ml of the mix ended up in my 29g tank Iv been doing water changes daily since it happened and I did two major water changes when I came home and found it, both almost emptying the tank. I added some carbon to my filter & Im going to continue doing water changes for the rest of the week, but is there anything else I should do or add to help get rid of the yeast mix in the tank?

Nope your already doing the best thing possible 50+ WC's daily.

Do you have a separator between your bottles and the tank? (a small disposable water bottle plumbed into your C02 line between the bottles and tank to catch any back pressure)

Yeah I have a separator/bubble counter on it too, it got knock off the bottom of the stand and one of the 2 liters was basically upside down with the separator on it, so it got filled up too. I may add a second one to the line just to be safe.
