    Can someone help me out with this. There seems to be a little tube like growth on the side of my clam that is causing him not to fully open on that one side. It looks like it could be a small tube for a worm or something. Should I break it off or just let it go?? In the pic its on the far side of the clam on the right

    Maybe this will give you ease when using an LED light with a clam.

    I didn't read the whole thread, but I'm sure by now you are convinced you can definitely grow clams under leds. This clam was grown under my AI sol blues and it's growing quick.

    Maybe start a separate thread for this question in the ID forum section. As for the identification I honestly can't even see what you are talking about to even take a stab at it in the picture you provided.

    Sorry, but maybe with a better pic. Also probably get more responses in a new thread for this question.

    That said however, if it is noticeably bothering the clam and you don't care if it is gone or what it is just break it off.
