If you rinsed your hands well, I think you'll be fine.

If you are using charcoal then change that and keep an eye on your skimmer if you have one.

You have nothing to worry about. Unless you literally dumped a bar of soap or several pumps of liquid soap in your tank, you'll be fine. A trace amount of soap won't do diddily jack to your tank.

I am one of these better safe than sorry especially when there are invertebrates in the tank. If your corals start to recede or close up then you will want to do a water change.
