Best clams for a mixed reef-r they worth the time or difficult to care
I think there worth it. Clams add a lot of color to the tank. As long as you have proper lighting and keep your tank stable there really not difficult in my experience. Buying a healthy specimen from a reliable source is very important.
Watch your calcium and alkalinity uptake. They DRINK calcium and alkalinity.
Definitely worth it IMO. Second favorite thing to have in a reef tank behind acropora.
See the Rocks here in the lower picture? Those are tridacna clams in Tahiti. My wife is to the right and of course diving with me there.
What type are you thinking about getting? i really want a blue Tridacna maxima.
Not sure-had a blue maxima once that i loved-just want to be smart about what i am adding-that clam lasted about a yr and then just died-but i thibk it was when i had my tabk crash
My squamousa by far has been the hardiest of my clams. It's survived three moves now and all my stupid mistakes back when I was noob. It's just getting to big for the tank now.
Wow really like the look of those.
Mine developed blue spots under my halides after I had it for a year. Now years later, it's a nice colored clam for sure. I've always liked there pattern.
Love to see a pic of it. I read the blue in the squamousa is rare and shoots value up so i bet its a nice clam.
