RE: copper problem
I have used activated carbon to very effectively remove copper treatments in
salt water. The carbon must be fresh. It takes from over night to a few
days. The level of copper you have is big time toxic to inverts but will not
kill most fish. Tetras are somewhat sensitive.
Somehow I doubt that it is very good for people.

Subject: copper problem
All of a sudden it looks like the pH of my incoming well water has dropped
below 6.0 and the water is leaching copper out of my pipes. I took a water
sample to a local pet shop for an analysis and the copper measured at above
2.0 ppm. In the last few days, I've lost all of my tetras and I'm afraid to
do any water changes or wet any peat.
Does anyone know of a cartridge-type filter I could install on the faucet in
my fishroom to remove heavy metals?
