    Picked up a new maxima today. My wife went to our LFS to pick up some frozen food and she spotted this amazing clam. It's acclimating well to its new home. Got a pic with the halides on and one with just blue leds. 20160414_192032.jpg 20160414_210100.jpg

    As you add clams does it significantly affect your calcium uptake? I've lost track as to how many clams you all have but I'm guessing you go through a bit of two part haha

    The clams do suck up some calcium but I keep it at 450-470 so it's not that bad. I do have to dose though. I dose 30ml of alkalinity daily, 15 morning and 15ml at night. I dose 30-50ml of calcium chloride weekly at 10ml at a time.

    Top down is the ONLY way to view clams. I had hoped one day to setup a shallow clam only system. seriously. just enough rock for a tang or two. 8 inches of water and maybe some substrate or starboard.

    DSC.. you asked for these on here.

    this was the selection I had to choose from at the Swap. all aqua cultured from Pacific East Aquaculture. you can see the two I bought dead center.

    Holy S#$! I could never see that many clams, I wouldn't have the strength to buy only 2! Me and my wife have been talking about a clam only tank for years, maybe one day......Thanks for sharing pickup, this is why I started this thread.

    Dsc. I've seen them have twice this many. If u go to a frag swap or big coral show look for Pacific East. Dr mac and his wife are tops in the business with clams.
