You're right about the nitrate and phosphate, with respect to the 
calcium or magnesium we have not tested so I couldn't say either way, 
but we do not add any.

Yes, but I would imagine much of that cloudiness is the result of 
stirring up normal detritus that settles in any substrate rather than 
the Flourite "coming apart"... if this were the case the Flourite 
would be reduced to a big pile of dust rather rapidly I would think.
