I have read a few accounts but the one that sticks in my head is that a 1 inch clam grew to 3 inches in about 5 months. So im guessing they grow quicker when they are younger and then slow down as they age.

Good lighting and water flow. 3" and under I feed a few times a week with coral frenzy. Here's 3 of my 5.

Thank you! I was trying to find how to feed them online last night and was unsuccessful. I was a little distracted though but how do you feed them? I know people use a syringe to spot feed but what kind of method do you use??
