Cu2+ (aq) + 2OH- (aq) --> Cu(OH)2 (s)

Ammonia is then added to the above heterogenous mixture. The precipitate dissolves, and then the entire solution turns a deep navy blue. However, adding OH- to the deep navy blue solution results in the precipitate reforming.

What is the net ionic equation that describes this reversible event?
