The invertebrates will not live even with small traces of copper. Copper is difficult to remove even with a large water change. Did you use copper for ich based on this thread? Copper is not a problem in a quarantine tank but in a main tank, it is where invertebrates and decorations are your concern.

That will still do some damages to your invertebrates unfortunately.

Like stated before. Coper will soak into the sealant, sand/crushed coral bed and everything else that was in the tank. You will never get it all out. It will be released back into the water over time.
