Mmmmmmmmm I have heard that mentioned already about Pygmy Angels, however, I do have a Bi-color in there at the moment that showed no interest in my Metallic Green Polyps I put in but never made it. That was just trying to much to fast learn't that one the hard way.

I have heard directly from folk that had pygmies or regular angels for years w/no problems. Then..... all of a sudden one day they find out they like the stuff.

Good luck!

I have a small crocea and small derasa under 2 x 150W MH in a 4' 120 gallon tank. I set them high on the rocks. They appear to be doing great. Flame angel hasn't touched them. The snails like to eat the algae off their shells and they clam up until the snail is off.

just cheap cleaner clams disappear. Mine does anyways...pull him up, turn your head, then oops......he's gone! lol, I've never been able to actually catch him do it. I bet it's pretty cool to see. I think the lighting you have should support Tridacnids well if your water's good like you say. Some get bigger than others....so look at how big you want. I can't remember the ones that get absolutely huge....I'm thinking maybe Gigas and Squamosa.
