    I just purchased a beautiful Maxima Clam, and have had him in my tank for a couple of days. last night I found one spiny star astrea snail climbing on my clam. I assumed this wasn't a problem since they are algae cleaners, but I removed him to be safe. This morning, 4 of my 5 astreas were on...

    I have more than one tank, will add others later. Pardon the mess - fighting with it all the time. While I'm able to keep most of corals and filter-feeders alive and well, I have to change setups (and add the new nano-tanks) to fit their needs, not set the tank and fill it with animals who...
