Go to Petco or your local fish store and ask them what they have. I bought something that absorbs it and is supposed to neutralize it. I know Kordons makes a chemical that does this. When I get home I will look at what it is called for you!

You still need to be very careful about it. If a tank was treated with copper then all the LR will absorb it and leech it out over time. Best way to prevent an issue is to only buy LR that you know hasnt been in a tank treated with a copper medicine so its always good to ask before buying but most stores won't have that problem since they usually quarantine. Getting rock off of friends or CL is when you really need to ask.
