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.

I actually used copper sulphate in the main tank. :(

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.
