copper is tricky, short of takeing the tank apart getting new substrate, and super cleaning it out, chances are you won't get rid of it all. sometime doing all that dosent' even help, it gets trapped in poures materials, and substrate.

you need a copper testing kit and that will tell when it would be safe.
