Octopuses are very sensitive to copper - I don't know that anything works for fully removing copper and I know no one who has tried this. The safe thing to do is to look for another tank.

I agree, get rid of that tank! you can't guarantee that copper remover will remove all and cephs will die at exceptionally low levels
