I know some folks go a bit 'clam crazy'. How many clams do you have in your system and lets see some pics?

I have two... a 15" Squammie and a 2.5" Derasa.
Adding two more tomorrow. Two T-Max's...

Want a deep blue clam in my tank! Some are SO sensitive to light though. Have to make sure I have plenty!

What kind of lighting are you using

two reefbreeders style LEDS, 32". You can get the exact same LED off ebay for about 30% less money... each has 99 x 300W LEDS....

I've got a medium sized one that's vibrant blue.http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/12/04/20d5ef178c084cc922e01d27bedb32de.jpg

I have it under LED's and 5 hrs of MH.

Only a couple at the moment, a 14" squamosa and a 10" deresa. Had a lot in the past, particularly in one system where I employed a clam scrubber. A dedicated, predator free tank with as many as ten clams at its peak, including specimens from all five of the common species.

Afraid not. Was a tank I ran from 1992-95. Wasn't much of a photographer then (nor now either :lol:). That tank was almost completely DIY top-to-bottom and I regret no photographic record. C'est la vie!

Wow that's such a beautiful blue! What size was it when you bought it? How long have you been growing that beast?

Really wasnt too much into clams till a saw a squamosa a guy had on consignment at the local store and it was close to 14 inches he had 6 years grew it from a little guy and was getting too big for his tank so I picked it up.. He had it under t5's and I have kessils and t5's and so far so good.. When they get big they are show piece in itself..
