Flourish overdose?

I did a 25% water change in my 10 gallon today, I added prime, flourish and leaf zone to the water bucket and pumped it back in. It dawned on me I put like 4ml of Flourish in where I normally do 1ml. I don't know where my head was!

Inhabitants are rcs, Nerites, Pygmy cories and Amanos. Will they be okay with this overdose?

Theoretically it should be OK. But....amidst many recent discussions on micro toxicity, some people reported that their shrimps became more active and lively upon reducing micro nutrients (which is what Flourish Comprehensive provides).

This leads to the conclusion that excess traces can have a negative effect on inverts. And shrimps generally do not like drastic changes of any sort.

The safe bet is to do another water change to dilute the concentration, say 50%.

All micro ferts contains copper and all inverts are sensitive to it. So probably another water change might be a good idea.
