View Full Version : Crushed coral in derasa

Well, my damsels like to carry and drop crushed coral everywhere and wouldn't you know it one dropped the biscuit right in the basket. Chunk of crushed coral goes right into the intake tube:angryfire:! Please tell me my clam isn't doomed and this will pass. The derasa is otherwise completely healthy with good mantle extension, growth and byssal filament attachment

Also no gaping, the piece just happened to be thin enough to tumble into the intake. I've been watching the clam for a few minutes now ant it looks like it's trying to expel the chunk, I'm now concerned that it could get stuck in the out siphon as the clam is about 2.5-3 inches long

If the clam can't spit it out maybe it will turn it into a pearl. We can hope:)
