Yeah he's still super shy but is starting to dart in and out of the rocks.

I also realized I have tons of tiny chitons in my tank as I took a flashlight after lights out and they are everywhere!!! Pretty cool and have no idea where they came from. I never noticed them when I had my 20 gallon. They are all over my sump as well.

Thanks guys I do love my clams! Some other updates:
Leopard wrasse is such a fatty! Eats anything I put in the tank!! The fathead is slowly adjusting, she ate but is still really shy.

Clams are doing fantastic as well as my Rbta who has decided to inch closer to my green slimer lol. But it seems to have stopped there. Most of my algae is dying back and my sps growth is really starting to take off with the kalk being added to my ato.

I've been thinking of dosing kalk in my ato as well. Can't you only use the middle layer once it's mixed or am I thinking of something different?

Yeah it separates into 3 parts. A solid precipitate on the bottom, a clear liquid that you use and then a film on top

The bottom and top layers that Bri is talking about are very thin. The middle layer of mixed solution is pretty large. When I had my SW tank setup I used an aqualifter to dose/topoff and I kept the line going into the bucket about 3" off the bottom of the bucket to keep from sucking up any of the precipitate.

You need to make sure you monitor you pH if you decide to go this route it can cause a pH drop if you aren't careful. Once you have it balanced and using it for topoff via a float switch you are good to go.
