Hello everyone...I'm a new member.....I had an outbreak of ich in my 37 gallon...treated with sea cure copper and had to add up to three doses a day to keep levels at 1.5 ppm....well the ich is gone but I can't seem to get rid of the cooper...I've done countless water changes and changed carbon but I'm still at 0.5 ppm and its been about two months since I've stop adding cooper... I have plastic coral ornaments and carib sea pink sand about 2" layer..thanks! Sad

As long as the tank always remains fish only you will be fine. No inverts or corals though. The copper is in the rock, the sand and the silicone seals of the tank most likely. Usually people treat with copper in a dedicated quarantine tank to prevent polluting the main tank.

Hmmm, I read something the other day stating that activated carbon is not as effective at removing copper as many assume... there are other products available for this, start with a couple of PolyFilters
