Salvaging A Tank

spike98

I had to treat my divided 10 Gallon betta tank for velvet and now that copper has tainted most things in the tank I was wondering if I could save a few things and use them with even shrimp. I want to save the sponge filters, heater, and plants. I just want to know if these things will be safe to use after copper treatment. I'm doubtful about saving the sponge filter as it is will trap copper water. The most important to me are the plants and heater.

I know the heater will be fine. I think that after a nice wash the plants wil be fine.

Okay thanks. I'm glad I can save the expensive stuff and I want to save the sponges but after remembering how many pores they have I'm better off with a new one.
