    im about to re aqua scape my tank for the final time with final amount of rock, i just got my last 10 lbs yesterday and i noticed on one piece 3 rather large clams or oysters stuck to the rock,they are all encrusted in coraline so it kinda looked like part of the rock at first. what should i do with these things? how do i pry them off.the rock is from florida if that helps.

    Why not just keep it. I would just ignore it and arrange the rock that looks the best. They will often live (for a while) and they are good filter feeders

    Keep them. Great filtrators.

    Often come on Florida rock.
