API leaf Zone 20ml

20 gallon, nerite and assassin snails (I know, they are happy, fyi).

Should I change the water? How much?? Detox?

Thanks!!

If you double dosed, do a 50% water change. I don't believe Leaf Zone is super toxic, so that should probably resolve it.

I would do a 50 percent water change now, and then you should be good to go. Too much fertilizer can actually harm your plants, as well as the snails.

Leaf Zone is just Iron and Potassium....I would not be too concerned...

Iron is a heavy metal, you can probably "bind" it with Prime (the bottle says that it detoxify heavy metals). Algae will probably use it as well. If you have snails in your tank, see if they head to the surface. Snails are good indicators if something is wrong with water quality.
As for Potassium....it is really hard to overdose it.

Agree, nearly impossible to overdose potassium, and iron won't be a problem either. 50% WC if you're really worried.
