I wouldnt use it as it will soak into everything and you will never remove all of it. So there goes having any inverts, or corals. All you will have is fish.

What makes a good tank for a reef?

Well, jokes on the copper then. Guess I have an excuse to get a new tank! What is the ideal tank style for a reef tank?? I've seen ones that are acrylic and have tubes and some kind of overflow thing built into the back. Does all that stuff even help out at all, or should I just stick with good ol' glass.. I guess the question now is: "What makes a good tank for a reef?"

Stick with glass.:) The only thing I hate with acrylics is they scratch easily.

What about those little overflow things in the back and the tubes? I don't want to drop a bunch of money on a tank only to say "Dang, I wish I didn't get a glass tank! Where are my tubes??!!!"

An RO unit will help with your copper piep problems. We all have copper pipes leading to our homes. I wouldn't just dump the water straight into the tank from the tap. Yes copper is very harmful for both corals and inverts.
