Nitrate issue

I've had previous posts and have one more theory. Want some input

I've got a Goniopora and I think it's had a few polyps disappear since I bought it.... I know about the problems with them so no need to let me know about that...

Could the "dying" polyps add to my nitrates ????

anything that is dying will eventually cause nitrates yes if you notice them dying or dead you should remove it

You could try to save it in a qt tank so it would not poison the main tank.

I didn't mean poison literally, I meant ammonia spike from something dying. If the nitrates went up it means that there was an ammonia spike first(even if it was a small one).
