    I took the plunge today and bought a 3-4" blue corcea clam. I have done my research but I have found nothing on what to do if things go south by no means am I preparing for failure but I di strongly believe that you will fail at anything if you aren't truely prepared. Tank info 110dt with 30g...

    I've got sevral bristle worms living in my tank now for the better part of a year. I first noticed them in the LR and now I see them in the sand bed and also in my Veggie Clipsthat I use to feed my purple tang. Most are tiny (<1"), however I've seen a couple that are about 1.5", nothing much...

    I saw some clams that are only 1". The vendor couldn't give me a name of them (although he is trying to find out for me). This is a semi-closeup: This is the only close-up I took. Didn't take a closeup of the one on the left in the picture above: The picture truly does not do the...

    I picked up a small crosea this week that is about 2.5 inches. I know they need to be spot feed, is it ok to put it in a small bowl with some phyto and tank water to feed it. How long do I leave it in there and how many times a week should I feed it.

    Hi everyone, After reading the earlier post on the rock boring maxima clam, I got to thinking that perhaps I have my clam in the wrong place. I placed him on the sand bed because my tank is fairly shallow and I have 250W 14K MH lights. He seems happy and what not, but should I move him? I...

    I want to do a little window shopping while I wait for my Giant Clams book to come in. I tried clamsdirect but they are working on their site. I looked at the sponsor page, but was wondering if anyone has ordered clams online and what your experience was. This would be a perfect time/place for a...

    i was reading in some magazine that there is one of the clams that do well under low light, i think it was a croacea or maxima, i guess i need to be sure before i ask, but is this true? think one would do ok under some pc's?

    paid 75 for a croaca clam, looking to trade it for some acros. the reason i'm selling is because i'm not wanting to feed it anymore its about 4 inchs maybe 5 inchs i'v been feeding it phyto plankton and zooplex. its doing well.
