I have copper plumbing

I just moved back in April and now have the room to set up my tank as a FOWLR. Eventually I would like to have some inverts. All I read about is that copper is deadly to inverts. Will my copper water lines cause me a problem? I was planning on using a "Tap Water Purifier" for the time being because my budget doesn't allow for an RO/DI unit right away. Will this be ok?

Thanks in advance!

If you mean the ion-exchange column then you should be fine.. just make sure you purchase a TDS meter and check your filtered water everytime.

Yep, that's the one I was referring to also.
