    [red]Nice to see you stop by Barry!  My best to Sherry.

    Would you be kind enough to post the minimum tank size, filtration, water quality, lighting, etc. necessary to keep one of your beautiful clams in good health.  This will help the winner prepare for an awesome livestock addition!

    TIA[/red]

    The larger the water volume the better chances that you will be able to keep a clams for long term due to growth and water chemistry changes.  IME, I would have to say at least a 20 gallon and then I would have a small amount of corals in it to avoid water warfare.

    We do have new stock in but we are getting new arrivals almost weekly.

    Thanks Barry! What about lighting, substrate, live rock, and tank age if any of those apply?

    TIA

    MH is always better when keeping clams for the long term IME but some will do well with PC such as Squamosa, derasa and hippopus.

    Substrate I like to use crushed coral as it is not so fine that it will clog the clams gills up. LR good :) Age of tank, like to see some corallline algae growing first. That is a good sign that the tank is maturing. All chemistry should be stable with little or no swings.
