    Not to hijack, but this short-hand text typing drives me nuts! Sorry hijack over. lol :whip:

    Like already mentioned, keep those levels up and you will be fine. Don't forget to keep an eye on your Mg levels too.

    I have four in a 75 and they are doing great. I also use a calcium reactor to maintain my alk and cal.

    Stock it up buddy! you can put as many as you want. I have tanks with like 16 clams in them and have customers who have had up to 30 clams in like a 75 gallon.
