So do I do a clam like a fish (drip method) or a coral (float and drop in)?
long drip, then temp
Wouldn't it be temp then long drip?
If you drip it outside of a sump then it would drip and temp. If you drip inside the sump then you have done both at the same time. Also when you put the clam in the tank rotate it around under the water to remove any air that got into it. Make sure it is closed tight before taking it out of the water so no air can get in it. Make sure your LFS does the same.
Oh well I set iin my sump in the bag for about 10mins, about to start the drip. How long 1hr-2hr?
2 hours is what I like for them. I actually do several temp acclimations, just to keep the temp as stable as possible over the longer period.
I also buried a peice of lr about half an inch under the sand bc I didn't know if the foot would reach through my 3" sand base.
Nightster, i see you chose to buy the clam. congrats on a pretty piece for a good price. i would like to see a pic once it gets settled in!!!
Ill definitely post a pic, I just hope the live rock underneath stays buried. Half an inch isn't much, I'm kinda woried about that...
