    I was thinking of getting some new clams, my Squamosa was one of the first things I ever added to my tank and has tripled in size over the last year. I figured what better way to decide what I want than to see some pictures? Here's my Squamosa Clam. And here are some HUGE clams I saw at...

    I've got a Crocea clam that has grown way faster than I thought it would. Anyways it positioned itself between two outcroppings of rock and now it has run out of room to grow. It can't open very much. Is there anything I can do? I'm afraid to try to move it.

    I really wanted to avoid doing this, because I know I'm compulsive: Buying something because of chance and opportunity, and even failing to do my homework before I buy. But I just did it again, it was too beautiful. :doh: I purchased a squamosa clam, and I just want to be absolutely sure it's a...

    Hello! I just got my first Crocea clam. I've introduced it into my tank already. It's about 2 inches from corner to corner of its "mouth". I read that when they are that small they have to be light acclimated and that it should start lower in the tank and eventually brought up higher into full...

    We just bought 2 clams. One is a Blue Crocea The other one is a yellow and brown striped Maxima. After we got them home we found that they have snails. and red tiny worms on them. Can we dip Clams safely in Sprung's Revive Coral Cleaner? Or does anyone have any ideal how to get rid of...

    So my crocea clam has been acting up lately, In other threads I posted issues with trumpet corals and hammer corals and we concluded it was due to the addition of a biopellet reactor and GFO reactor too quickly... after removing the GFO and reducing the pellets all came back to normal except the...

    So everything has been going great in my tank, 3 weeks ago I added a biopellet reactor and slowly stepped it up to full capacity to avoid a bloom, and I added a GFO reactor the same week. Total system is apprx 65gals (see tank specs). Nitrate almost nil, Phosphate almost nil, 0 Nitrate, 8.4 PH...

    Hey everyone, I was buying some softie frags from a guy off craigslist, and he convinced me to buy his 4.5" crocea clam, bright blue for $60. I always make the mistake of committing something to my tank before being 100% sure, but dont we all.... I have a 46g bow front with 4x 39w t5HOs, 2x...

    Ok i bought a crocea clam last week and been searching for info on lighting. I've read a couple places that some people were keeping crocea clams on the bottom of there tanks under 216w t5ho. Just wanna make sure i can do this so i dont kill the poor thing. So anybody who knows about clams...

    I own 1 fixture its a t5 ho 2 bulb..was wondering if I bought a second one and upgraded the bulbs for higher wattage, so that 4 bulbs. would this support a clam and possibly some hard coral in my reef tank? Thanks all! I could never get a good answer so far but hopefully someone can here

    My parents bought me a crocea clam for christmas. They brought it home then I acclimated it, sat it on a flat rock, and then watched. It wasnt a half hour and the clam jumped off the rocks. This was at 9pm last night so I was like I'm not messing with this clam all night so I took the flat rock...

    To all clam lovers, Check out my new clams! I am deciding how much the price to let go for each of my clams, sort of the market survey for my clams. Please give suggestions of how much you think each clam (pic number eg. IMG_XXXX) would worth($XX). Thanks! You can also share your clam pics...

    Eventhough you may have metal halides HID lamps, 20000K does not provide enough PAR for the clams! Even if you put clams near the surface of your tank! Crocea and Maxima are grow in shallow waters! Here's my experience. I had 7 croceas and 4 maximas in my 8ft tank for two and a half...

    So how are you all doing..I was just looking at the LFS inventory and i saw that they had some small derasas, crocea and maxima clams. I was wondering with my lights; two 50/50 18wtt coralife bulbs over my biocube 8, would be enough to support maybe a derasa or a crocea(that would be no more...
