Is Metricide with activator still good?

I bought a gallon and added the activator before looking to see if I was supposed to. Is it still OK to use?

From what I read that is a no no.
Type in metricide (search) and read up on it to see for yourself...

Hello Dude...

The activator turns the industrial form of carbon into a chemical used to sterilize surgical instruments. Don't put it into the tank.

I guess the dose last night was not a good idea. I'll have to get the C02 tanks filled tomorrow. Thanks
