Damn it, i just, got all excited cos i set up a nice looking tank with green slate, now i'm worried about the copper leeching! is there any way to test for this or do i just have to wait for fish to die (not my prefered method really...) it's quite a light green though...

If in doubt I would prefer to remove it if it were me, rather than wait for them to die. If you have snails, and they have died recently then that is an indication that copper is leaching because they are more sensitive to copper than fish but again - I would remove it until I know whether or not it does leach copper.
