    Congrats for sure!

    Lovely looking tank! Where did you get the newer looking rock from?

    (love the shot of the goby and clown...)

    My LFS Sells live rock for 7.99 a pound so I told my self no way, I will watch it develop. They sell this stuff "Dr. Bones" dry rock for like $2 a lb so I have been buying that lately. There are only a couple of pieces of the 7.99 rock in there, the rest has been dry rock just purchased at different times.

    I certainly will!!! Just so everyone knows... The clam was packaged very well with a heating pack, double bagged, wrapped in bubble wrap in a Styrofoam cooler. I am quite pleased with TritonsGarden.

    Great setup, congrats on the clam, You might want to use some epoxy putty to create a shelf to make the clam attach in your chosen place.

    Yeah, the rock I had the clam on was VERY porous and he didn't like it so much so I moved him to a flat rock w/o holes and I saw him attach, he likes it there.

    How long did it take for him to attatch? I got a small one on Wednesday and he hasn't put down his foot yet.
