    Nope, that's definitely why they're doing "good". Luck has nothing to do with it really :) How big is the clam?

    Just a tagalong here, clams under 3 inches MUST be fed! Over 3 inches, they become more self sufficient, more photosynthetic really,....but I still feed anywhoo!;D

    Yup. This is why Barry from ClamsDirect recommends MH lighting for the clams he sells.
