Mekaeel, when you say the tank was run on copper, what do you mean?

It also means you could only use it for fish, no clean up crew - as the copper is toxic to them, still be a great fish only tank though:)

I tend to disagree wee man i have modded many fo tanks that were run on copper to house corals, It is a bit of work but pretty simple.

All that is needed is to cut away all the sillicone seals , i mean all the seals, leave just the sillicone holding the tank together and reseal, the trick is to make a larger seal than the first, or a dbl seal, i like to do both, i have never had a problem with this method, and have converted a few tanks to date. :yeahdude:

Fair enough, but that is a hell of a lot of work, and not to be attempted by the amatuer knife wielder, but if you can do it properly, then your inverts will be sae.
I thought it prudent to point out just incase anyone was unaware of the affects copper has on inverts.:)
