Aquarium Pharm copper test kit that test 0-4ppm. Will this be sufficent?

It should be, if can take more than one sample, that would be good. I'm kinda paranoid like that. How long does it take to complete the test?

I'm not sure which one it is, but I remember doing a heavy metal test that took like 2 hours, and I think it was copper. Back in my days in frigid Maine! But I digress, I would do 2 seperate tests in your case and compare the results of the two to one another. I have never used anything to treat disease, aside from the fresh water dip,(very rarely!) but I am a little on the paranoid side of everything!
