Gluing ABS to PVC

On a closed loop I'm plumbing, a couple of the bulkheads I used were ABS slip type. I just glued PVC directly into them with standard clear PVC cement using primer beforehand. It seemed to set up just fine but haven't leak tested yet. Should I be worried about these leaking? Didn't even think about them being different materials and maybe needing a special solvent.

Ok, I'll just leave it as is and leak test. If I had known better, I would have used the right stuff, but it's a PIA to replace since I have a gazillion of other fittings glued on downstream already. Just hope for no leaks!
