You say you got the results back. Did you have to send your water off some place?

copper was 0.08
Copper should not exist

Are you using tap water on your tank? If so have you had your tap water tested from this place? Can you get a sample of RO/DI water (if your using that) to be done to provide a basis of what quality water your adding to your tank.

Copper was .08. What was the measurement? ppm...ppb? I wonder at what level the copper would be considered harmless? Or is even the slightest trace dangerous for the inverts?
