Yeast in tank.. :|

Well, after I got my tank looking good, chrystal clear water, good plants.. the bad happens.. damnit im so pissed.. I had just made a new bottle of diy yeast and sugar to produce c02 and I guess I put too much yeast.. it shot up the line into the intake of my filter... I done about a 16 gallon water change (46 gallon tank) and put start right (dechlor) in it.. Will it hurt the plants/fish? My tank isent as cloudy as it was, its almost clear again but still just a tad cloudy.

thanks.

a diy bubble counter will help prevent that from happening... and don't forget checkvalves...

Yeah I know.. I hooked my bubble counter back up again.. had just unhooked it too.. will it hurt the fish or plants though? That's what I'm worried about.

I did that too last week, and it didn't hurt any of my fish, granted they are pretty hardy. Should go away after a few days and some cleaning by you.

its shoudln't hurt anything at all, as long as u did water change... when i used to keep couple plants in my turtle tank, i spilled my mix into it once, i did daily 50% w/c for the next 3 days after a week everything is fine, it houses one res, 6 cory and some plants that won't fit into my main tank... no plants in it now besides the duckweed, i guess most plants i have don't like the uv light and the full blast brisking lights...
