You're likely fine. It takes a lot of Prime to create an overdose situation. How big is your tank?

I like to go by drops per gallon. I use 2 drops of prime per gallon. Helps me make sure I don’t overdose.

I've never heard of anything bad happening from a prime overdose. Since it just binds to the ammonia I don't think anything bad could really come from it.

You should be fine. Its hard to overdose from prime.

According to seachem most fish are safe with 5× the recommended dose.

Personally I would do a water change to dilute it. If not just be sure to keep an airstone running because according to Seachem using too much (and 15 mls is definitely too much in a 10 gallon tank) can lower the oxygen level in the water.
