    Hi guys.
    Maybe someone can give me advise. I have a tropial tank that i wana drill and convert into a marine tank. My question is this, i had the tropical for some time and had to add copper based midicine a few times.

    Will there be any copper left and an i do a reef setup or should i go for a FOWLR system?

    i've currently been storing all my corals in my holding tank for about 7 weeks which was used for copper treatments, i have yet to see any ill effects. I will do a test and see if there is any traces of CU.
