I noticed when getting a water quality report from COS that the copper levels were higher than I'd been expecting. 0.189 is what the handout appears to show.

I know for salt/reefs, everyone uses RO so it likely isn't as much of an issue, but are there are products folks here have found well at removing/neutralizing copper in their tanks?

I'm generally changing out about 100G of water each week, and I'm not about to start doing RO water for all that, but if I could address the copper that would probably be smart.

Cuprisorb or metasorb. I run one or the other just to make sure I'm pulling out heavy metals. I've run them ever since I had an iron poisoning in one of my tanks.
