    Hey hey... Settle down please...

    It's not worth it to try to get copper out of the rocks and sand of a 30 gallon tank. It's going to take more time, effort and money to do that than to just buy new rock and sand.

    Fellas, fellas, relax...we've all messed up before. Let's not make this worse than it has to be. You know what bro, like Biff mentioned, it's not worth the headache to try to get the copper out, although it Can be done, it's simply not worth it...trust me, I've tried. :)

    Yeah bro...it infected it. Thank goodness it didn't kill your inverts you had in the tank.
    I'm telling what I would do...I'll keep the 30gal as a fish only tank, or a species only tank...and set-up your old 10gal as your small reef tank, with your corals and inverts.

    Yeah, the clown should be ok...when you get a chance, do a nice w/c to try to dilute some of the copper med out, it'll make it easier on the fish, and even all your levels out naturally.

    It will eventually go down, but there will always be traces of it in the tank, because it's soaked into the rocks and sand, and even traces of copper could be fatal to inverts and corals.

    ...They come with warning labels and instructions for a reason. ;)

    Copper is very effective at treating ich if used properly. It must be used in a quarantine tank with no rock and no sand, and it must be measured precisely.

    What kind of copper did you use? Was it coppersafe?

    i dont think there is anything that is "coppersafe". And the copper is going to be in your rocks and sand, its not going to magically disappear after a month.

    Just ditch the rocks and sand. You have a tiny tank, its going to be very easy and cheap to replace.
