copper in fish food????

I recently purchased a CUC for my 29g FOWLR. I got several red tip hermits a turbo snail, bumble bee snails, ceriths, margaritas, nerites and about a dozen ghost shrimp. while there the LFS owner suggested I use "New Life SPECTRUM Marine Fish Formula" sinking pellets as a staple diet for my 2 ocellaris. They love it. heres the question....

on the list of ingredients something called copper proteinate is way down at the bottom. isnt the copper bad for the inverts????

No, at those levels no need to worry.

Ok thanks I had done some research online that said the same thing, but I just wanted to make sure it wasnt going to bioaccumulate. is it also safe if I add corals or anemones later?
