I have a few bivalve hitchhikers on my live rock, right now its all i have in my tank so i want to let them thrive for a few months. Does anyone know what they eat or how to feed them. I have heard they like dirty water, since i dont have anything else would letting my water getting a little dirty hurt my lr?
thanks for the help

Ok thanks, should i spot feed or just add to the tank to feed them. Also is it possible to breed that stuff live?

Some clams and muscles will breed in your tank, but not all species. I've never had it happen, usually it's freshwater species like the quagga mussel that breed not marine species.

If you really want to target feed, turn off the pumps, then target feed the phyto right next to them. Wait a few mintues then turn the pumps back on.

I've never had these little hitchikers survive long once you introduce other animals to the tank. Shrimp, fish, and crabs, will eat them.
