    And if they can, what would the requirements be in W/gal. I'd love to add one to my tank, but I don't want it to suffer. I could put him just inches from the surface, but I don't think a 130W PC over a 29 gallon is enough, no matter how high he is. MH are too expensive for me. I'd love to have a...

    I'm purchasing a 150 gallon aqaurium. It is 48x24x30. I want to be able to keep SPS, clams, LPS, and some softies. I was thinking about getting 2x250 watt MH, 14000k but I didn't know if with that deep of a tank if I would need 400w.

    Under right conditions, is it alright for a Clam to be in a nano tank. Also, is it a MUST to have MH lighting on a clam?

    Is there any Clams that I can keep in a 75gal, with 440w VHO and a BB tank and put them on the bottom? I have been trying to read and it seems like opinions very a lot on this so I am a little unsure. Has anyone been doing this for a while with any success? thanks

    April Power Buy How about a CBA coral power buy? They have LOTS of nice acros and other stuff right now. I'd love a power buy on colonies and frags. I missed the frag group buy a while back and would love to have a chance to do that again. Melissa

    When Premium Aquatics lists light requirements for the two types of clam (Squamosa and Deresa) as: it makes it sound like i could keep them in my tank...the "standard FL" (i assume is short for *standard flourescent*) part i'm taking as my 3, 30 watt NO bulbs and recommended for beginner- no...

    I bought a maxima about a month ago and don't know much about them. This evening I noticed it was open MUCH wider than usual and 3-4 red leg hermits look to be cleaning it on the outside. 1 hermit is actually on the inside. They don't seem to be picking at the flesh, but rather the shell. I...
