    I'm dying for a clam, a Blue Maxima I think it's called. I have a small, 2" ish Coral Beauty Angel in the tank, a 90 gallon. Am I safe or will my $20 fish kill my $50 clam? Also in the tank is a Mandarin Goby, a Yellow Watchman Goby, 2 Perc Clowns, a Tomato Clown, and a CUC including a Coral Banded Shrimp, some cleaners and a Peppermint.

    Any concerns in there other than the Angel?

    Thanks!

    The angel may or may not be a problem depending on how well fed it is. I don't think the other will be a problem.

    ive had a coral beauty with a crocea clam together now for over a year. the beauty hasnt gone after the clams mantle. but the other side, all the dwarfs do come with caution in regards to this.

    :-/ Last night my sponge crawled out of the tank and gave me a bath. Should I be concerned?

    I have a CB with a Crocea clam and he's never gone after it, although he does occasionally nip my acans, but overall a pretty good citizen. It can be hit or miss though, so keep that in mind in making your decision.
