    Guys my pump for atu has packed up on last legs can i use my old pump that was in my qt tank, it's been dry for a while would i need to just rinse it off and use. As i don't think any copper can be absorbed by plastic.

    it might still have traces of copper on it, i would use a product like seachem cuprizorb to remove copper, but even then i would rather get another pump. builders warehouse sell boyu powerheads which can be used, about R150
