Yeah i guess i was thinking of feather dusters that they pick at. I really want both a dwarf angel and a copperband but i don't think i will be able to keep the dwarf.

That clam really is sweet. The tank is looking really good. Are you planning on keeping the back panel see through?

Since when? I require proof.
The only time I have heard of them bothering clams is if they are on the sandbed, which pats shouldn't be anyway. And even that is rarely documented.

I agree with you Jim. The longest I have been able to keep a CBB alive is 6-8 months. However, the couple I tried, never picked at my crocea clam.

Clam is part of the natural diet of a CBB, the only reason I got a clam was because my CBB suddenly died. Call BRK and ask John about putting a CBB in with a bunch of clams. He lost $$$$$$$ in clams because the CBB had a feast. They are a reef safe fish with caution. Also keep in mind that they will pick pods out of the rock work and compete with scooters and mandarins.

Some C. rostratus will require live foods to induce a feeding response. Foods such as live clams or black mussels that have had their shells broken open, or sessile invertebrate-encrusted live rock can initiate feeding. Live brine and frozen mysid shrimps have also been used to get reluctant fish to feed.

Come on Jimbo...google is your friend.

Just saying, from the dozen or so threads I double checked, no one had a problem. In any species there is always a fish that does crazy things or defies the normal behaviors.
Like you said, agree to disagree.

No, that is only of the last things on my list to pick up is a background. I am just going to go with a solid black. I can't stand seeing all the cords and stuff behind the tank. I'm hoping that will help to hide the power heads a bit as well.

I have heard it both ways on the CBB. I'm not sure what i'll do yet. Think i should give the dwarf angel a shot or just let it be?
