this water test was a marinlab water test can I just say never again will I send off for that water test is was a aqua forest test just due to the lack on costumer service after asking people that worked there about how to translate ugl to ppm I just kept getting told I am not a chemist you have have to ask the lab so I asked for the email for the lab after emailing them 4 times already just to make sure i am emailing the right email address and got no reply
I then while trying to find out the answers I then spoke to tim Caldwell @triton and wow what I big different in customer service even though he could not comment on the marinlab water test he then arranged for a triton water test to be sent out to me i sent this water test back and got my results back in just 5 days in plane English that everyone can understand pictures off new water test up in a minute

although the marinlab test is cheaper good luck trying to find any customer service after you have received your results. so I will not be wasting my money on paying for that test again and will only use triton water test.

Personally, I think people worry too much about the results of these tests.
If you have a problem in your tank and can not find it, then these tests are good.

I have had a problem for months with my tank losing corals all my corals to the point I have nothing left this is why I sent off for the marinlab lab water test and it came back so high in copper and a and some bits but copper is the main one so I have put in cupasorb before sending off for the triton water test to see if it works and it has in as little as a week as you can see in the results

You need to find out where the copper is coming from, have you checked your pumps.

I have checked everything in my tank even had local fish shop out to double check that I haven't missed anything can't find nothing running some test to try and find out we're and how is his got in my tank

You would be surprised what can fall into your tank. :(

I know it does happen but I wish I could just find a rusty old screw sitting in my sump or tank so I would know that I have it out and shorted but nothing so keeping up with water changes and everything else to see if that helps keep stuff down

Have you tried using a magnet on the surface of your sand bed. old glass cleaner magnet would do.
Long shot I Know.

I'm afraid copper isn't magnetic, if you've had high levels of copper for a while it will have a permeated into your rock and substrate and will continue to leach for a while. The most likely culprit is either a circulating pump or wave makers. Just an after thought, do you have a hood?, if so it could be something in there that's getting wet with condensation and dripping into the tank.

Looking for any metals
