Well if you feed them a ton they can split due to that as well but usually it is stress.

Mixed information everywhere lol. Many say that's them spawning many say they're about to die but my onion is they split a little more than a week ago and they're both thriving and growing more

The jury is still out. I personally dont think they split because they are happy. I believe that when stressed they will split. But like I said nobody really knows and I see both opinions pretty often.
