You got some nice stuff! I've been looking at clams lately and yours looks pretty nice.....If I may be so bold, how much was the clam?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I use a 7" filter sock for my double intake and love them. Only downside is you have to change them out every few days. Ihave about 4 of them soI can change them out and clean them when necessary. I use my garden hose with a "power head" type of handle so it really blows all the gunk out of the sock. You'll be amazed at how much gunk comes out. I was using the washing machine with no soap or anything on sterilize mode but it took 2 hours for each load. LOL Much easier with the hose.
