Whisper 10i medium filter
Freeze dried brine shrimp
I think I put too much food in the tank. This is my first time using freeze dried brine shrimp and I think I put too much in the tank. Can over-feeding just ONCE lead to disaster? I donít mean water quality, as tomorrow is a PWC day. Could overfeeding my fish just once lead to death?

You probably would really have to over do it enough to cause the fish to eat themselves to death. A lot of the freeze dried stuff consist of tiny fragmented particles / bio-dust, which will spread over the surface of the water. Not much nutrition in that. The fish will ignor most of that stuff. No worries.

Just do your water change tomorrow and vacuum the gravel. You'll be fine.
