Lobster Tank Hazards
Copper is lethal at .056 ppm

Pesticides are highly toxic and should never be used around lobster tanks or filter systems.
Oxygen saturation levels should be monitored regularly
Remove dead lobsters and uneaten food as decomposition utilizes excess oxygen and creates excess chemical contaminates.
