Copepods alive in copper tank?

Am I crazy or can copepods survive in copper treated tanks? There's hundreds on the glass, the copper levels of the tanks are 0.5, salinity is 1.020. I used both salifert and seachem test kits. I use Copper Sulfate to treat. Fish who showed ich before are healthy now, so its working.

Is this just a species that somehow will survive?

pods are very resilient. It does not surprise me that they survived. I have had pods survive salinity levels as high as 1.033...they are like roaches....

I'm not so worried about salinity... Isn't copper supposed to kill inverts?

Bump, also would like to know. Tank had copper at .25. Could trigger pods survive? Tisbe?
