    I really like derasas. If you keep up with the calcium and alk, it will grow fast.

    I am shocked at how much mine has grown in only 6 months or so.

    Looks like I will be adding a 3rd crocea to my tank tomorrow.

    sweet, i always have calcium 400-450 range, and my tank has always had a high dkh/alk 12-15.. this clam should help suck those numbers down.
    I guess I'll need to check my Magnesium I bit more now too.

    great, so basically everyone with a problem with high dkh = get a clam!

    lol.. I guess I dont really need to spot feed this thing since its over 3" in length.

    one last question, do these derasa have a foot like other rock boring clams? can I move it around my sandbed if needed? its laying on about 3" of CC/SAND mixture right now.. thanks
