    Thanks guys :)

    It's definitely bigger then I imagined, the cleaner shrimp really enjoying playing with it. It moved a little last night, not sure why.

    looks great biocube! The coloration is beautiful. Why do cleaner shrimp have such interest in the clam? Just curious....

    Thanks :)

    I think its because theres something new inside the tank, every time they try to clean the shell, the clam freaks out and scares them. It took about a month or so for them to leave any new frag alone, maybe they adopt every new tank mate as their own ;).

    Even if I put my hand inside the tank the cleaner shrimp latch on and "clean" my hand.


    Haha thanks bud, we need to get you a clam garden. ;)

    Beautiful clam, the shrimp will probably leave it alone soon. Just checking for food.

    My cleaner showed such interest at first. Now not so much.
