I am torn.... I know that you all speak the truth, and I have no worries that I can keep the copper at the correct levels (I have all the test kits). For the record I also have a QT
tank and that is not the issue....it is one of long term health and less concern.
I have thought of the point about the fish being in the copper for short periods of time at the LFS
vs. the whole life of them. This is the only poing that concerns me.
As far as live rock that is not really an issue either as in this tank everyting that is/was alive has/or will be eaten.
Ok so all of this in mind....if I decide to go ahead and run copper safe for a while...not permanantly, am I wrong in thinking that most of the copper can be removed with water changes and carbon. I KNOW not all of it will come out, but the trace amounts that would be left will not cause problems.
Thanks for all the good discussion on this guys
