I have used a 40 breeder that was once a QT tank and was hit with copper a few times. I was able to make it a sump for a thriving, invert filled, reef with no ill effects. I didn't use a copper test. I simply took my chances at the time and it turned out working in my, and my livestock's, favor.
I briefly glanced at this-
Copper accumulation... [Comp Biochem Physiol C Toxicol Pharmacol. 2010] - PubMed - NCBI
And before I started to drift off, I noticed that it had different effects on the anemone at different dosages. It's not a case where a tiny bit is going to wipe out everything. How much is the question. Ultimately, none is best.

Thank you for making my stress level go down

Believe it or not but I've heard some people use a bracelet copper for healing something or prevent some kind of disease, but I don't think it's the ich lol

I used copper pennies to control snails in freshwater tanks a few years ago.
