    I finally purchased my first clam. It is a nice looking ORA Blue T. Maxima clam. I actually did some research before purchasing and have it in my main tank about halfway up under the 20k metal halide. It is about 2 1/2" long and I was wondering what you thought was the best Phyto out there in the market for feeding this guy until it is large enough to to survive mostly on lighting? Thanks for any replies. :tongue4:

    We make our own but there are only two "reputable" makers of phyto and they are DTs and Reef Nutrition.

    Thanks, I was on the DT's site and was confused by the open air discussion of their product vs reef nutrition.
    I guess I have enough stuff going on without trying to grow my own Phyto also ;D

    :lol: Follow your heart :lol:

    I can't recommend which to use because like I mentioned earlier, I like my homemade stuff better than the commercial stuff

    I don't have any experience with DT, but I was impressed with Reef Nutrition. Things really seems to wake up with that stuff.
