Oops I put manure in my fish tank!!!

I just converted my sand tank to a dirted tank capped with sand. I didn't realize that the dirt had "natural fertilizers" I just read the ingredients. There is mostly composted peat and spaghum moss. But the last 2 ingredients are processed and composted poultry manure and composted food scrapes.
The tank is heavily planted. The fish are acting fine. Is there any concern. I don't know how much of it was manure. I'm scared. Help.m:ban ghead:

EDIT: I just found out organic miracle grow uses cow AND poultry manure. Yet many fish keepers use it... I'm lost. Help me.

You should be just fine. Keep in mind, you're currently fertilizing your tank with fish manure.
