Correct me if i am wrong.... Starfish are inverts,octi are inverts, so they have the same sensitivity to copper?

There are many, many different invertebrates-- generalizing about them like that is similar to saying "gophers are vertebrates. goldfish are vertebrates. I know if I hold a gopher underwater for 5 minutes it will die, so it stands to reason that if I hold a goldfish under water for 5 minutes it will die."

However, I have no idea if starfish are sensitive to copper levels or not.

I would say yes. They are an invert and all inverts are sensative to copper. (I think?) Have always thought so anyway.......
