    To acclimate the corals to your new lighting you will want to get some egg crate and cover it with 3-5 sheets of screen wire. Every other day remove one sheet and on the last day remove the egg crate. Sorry about your clam. If you could pick up some lighting now you might be able to save him or you could give him to someone with halides. Either way he has a very low survival rate.

    If you consider adding another clam, you might want to go for a squamosa. I've seen many of them thrive under PC lighting. In fact, as soon as my tank matures a bit more, and I actually can find one, it will probably be my first.

    I'm not an expert by any means, and could be totally wrong, but this is just my 2 cents.
