New tank and I am on well water

Hi, I have a 62 gallon saltwater tank. I am on well water and I think it has alot of copper in it or at least I was told. My starter fish and other fish are doing fine but I lost a starfish, shrimp, and lobster. I know you can test for this and which is the best test kist for testing for copper and minerals in well water. I've had my tank a couple of months now. Thanks, Diana

Thank you for your help, Steve. I'll do some more research into the ro/di Units. I do want long term sucess to come from this. I was given some Suprisorb and a bottle of SeaCure to try. Do you know much about those products? If they are any good or not and how often to add it to the tank.
Diana

Check Ebay for RO/DI sometimes you can get really good deals on there if your timing is right. I've heard that Salifert test kits are like the best of the best.
