0 nitrates are virtually impossible, api is known for incorrect test results.

there is a difference between cloning and splitting I believe.

I'm not saying that I agree or disagree but what I have read just states no one knows why it happens. We are all entitled to our opinions I just haven't seen any hard proof about why it happens.

I beleive stress causes a split ( bad ) and stress is caused by many things ( lighting, parameters, etc...). a cloning is however better and good and the anemone is seen as happy during this.

however it is hard to differentiate between the two

It should be noted that any drastic swings can be stressful. This is to include the things we see as good. Add too much gfo at once and suck out so much phosphate you can stress things out too, as an example. This is why I talk about being pristine and stable.

So im a little low on my gfo right now and i was wondering if i can or should just run carbon in my reactor with the little maybe 3oz of gfo i have left? Maybe my cheato would take off with little higher phosphates but im scared that it might ruin my corals, atm i run carbon in a bag but i feel like it doesn't do its job or a sufficient enough job

So my alk is at 7-8 right now. I was wondering what if i placed it higher? Like 12? Would it be faster growth/color or would it just do more harm then good?
