With aragonite sand mine sits right at 8.0. Ideally 8.0-8-4 range

Yeah I live smack in the middle of the USA, so pom pom crabs are expensive for me as well.

And how do I test for copper in my water? The nearest store that has ro/di water is more than 45 minutes away so I'd rather just use my own.

It would just be best to get a RO/DI filter. I'm lucky enough to live somewhere where the tap water is extremely clean, I don't use RO/DI water at all. All my fish and corals are just fine

$50+ depending on how many GPD you want.

With a 10 gallon I change 2 gallons a week. That's pretty easy to accomplish with most RODI units so it's up to you.

Yeah. For a 10 gallon you can go pretty small

I have more inverts I'd like to ask about.

1. Feather duster- I would not get it right away so the tank has time to mature, but would I need to feed it or will it feed itself? Are they easy to keep?

2. Curlycue anemone- Again, I would wait for the tank to mature, but supposedly this anemone does not require special lighting because it does not have zooxanthallae and is non-photosynthetic. Does anyone know anything about it or has anyone kept it before?

I don't know about the nem, but as for the feather duster, they're pretty easy to care for. They filter the water, and you should feed them phytoplankton and zooplankton multiple times a week.
