If you ever get something in your tank and you're not sure, you can always do a large water change. The larger the water change, the lower the concentration of whatever you're worried about.

Your fish are safe. DC fluid is simply bromthymol blue, which is a very mild acid, and some buffered water. The tiny bit in a dc will be diluted harmlessly.
