The fun thing is, you need to say exactly what you mean. Both myself and hank read your statement as a 100% restart which is exactly how it's worded. Following that with the ability to search the forum on Google and its spreading bad information
I could make a statement like "water changes kill fish" which is technically true assuming there is a huge difference in water parameters between old and new water. But taken at face value it means "a water change will kill your fish"
