So yeah, I was really tired this morning and went to feed the copepods. Apparently I need to stick the marine snow on a different shelf than the copepod blend for these occasions. Full capful in the culture. It is a tisbe culture and it is in:

.5 gallon betta tank w/
Small HOB filter (no filtration; for aeration and in case copepods like water slides)
Live rock
Some sand

Will it be okay or should I do a WC or something more drastic?

I don't think you have to worry.
On RC some years ago, Marine Snow and other items had been analyzed and were found to be basically just water and what was in the water was of not much significance as it would take just too much to be of any value.
Do you have a link by any chance?

No I don't. I was many years ago.
If you go to RC and go to the search function and type in Marine Snow you will probably get a pile of threads about it but you can skip back at least 5 years and start looking there. Hopefully you will luck in.
If you check the bottle it should state right on it I think that the moisture content is 99.6%, leaving not much left to be phyto/zooplankton.
