Default Another Irish Moss question

Brewed a 2 Gallon batch today. I added a tea spoon of the Irish Moss. I also strained the batch after I chilled it to yeast pitching temps. My concern from what I have been reading is that the amount of Irish Moss is for a 5 gallon batch. I'm just looking for some reassurance that I didn't mess up to bad. Thanks for the insight!

Your beer will be way too clear.

J/K, you should be fine. The only risk of IM is if you add such a HUGE amount it tastes like seaweed, very unlikely.
