, Doaner! C'mon guys take it easy and don't bite. Haven't you ever been bitten by the reef bug and wanted to rush a bit. I agree that slowing down a little is important though. While I have seen LPS
and even SPS
kept healthy and well under VHO
a clam is out of the range in lighting. I suggest reading and learning as much as you can while learning to maintain your water chemistry. Once you are able to test, test, and re-test and maintain good and stable perameters then you are ready. No one on this site will deem you ready and tell you to go forth young Jedi. Take it easy and use common sense. Happy reefing!
