    Hey Guys
    So I had my RBTA split today. No!No!No!No!No! now boys. Before you guys start getting ideas. It is not for sale. I repeat, "It is not for sale". I know that when they split it's because they grow to big and split or they split when they are stressed. How will I know which one caused the split? I just hope the split was for the good.

    I did all tests Sunday past and all was good except for NO3 which was between 0 and 10mg/l which I think is still okay. I hope!!!

    Four things in my mind that can influence a split,
    1. Parameters - can you post values for
    Ammonia
    n02
    N03
    P04
    Cal
    mg
    Dkh
    Salinity
    Temp
    ph

    2. Flow - how is the flow have you changed anything

    3.lights any changes in lights?

    4.food do you feed him?

    1. Parameter values were as follow:
    Ammonia - To follow
    n02 - 0.05
    N03 - 0 - 10mg/l
    P04 - 0 ppm
    Cal - 450ppm
    mg - 1200ppm
    Dkh - 1.7-2.8 with red sea kit
    Salinity 102
    Temp 23 - 26 deg cel
    ph - 8.2

    2. One thing funny enough, is that I changed my powerheads from 1 x 5000L/ph Sun Sun to two 3800Lph Seios last week Saturday. I do think htat the flow has decreasded though with the Seios Prop 1000's.
    Could this really play a role? What will happen to the RBTA if it was a negative split?

    3. Changed my lights three months ago from 4 x 39w to 6 x 39w

    4. He eats flakes when I feed him or I will drop some Ocean Nutrition Pellets from time to time. I also sometimes feed him Clamari

    Will post updated Parameter value Saturday.

    Change in flow or to much fiddling could be the cause of stress as well.

    Ok so I was there when you found out the rbta split.
    So I think its only fair that if you sell one, that it should be sold to me, I reckon the rbta only split cos he knew I was there. Lol.
    Only kidding guys, good luck with the nennie bra, was lukker meeting you,and this torch is top notch.

    Glad you happy with the torch bru!!! The Corals I said I was going to buy in place of the Torch. The guy sms's me today only to say they have been sold. Now I sit with an empty spot in my tank. Going shopping tomorrow I guess.
