I keep the lid on mine too, but somehow it happens, try putting some plain crackers in the salt, just like saltines but without the salt. Itll soak up any excess moisture

You can try regular bread too, just make sure to put it in like an open ziplock so crumbs don't get everywhere.

K. Just leave it open so the moisture gets in the bread?

Correct, like a pocket.

Mr. X, I believe is a big supporter of going through the sump so that his DT maintains a constant level, and also then when the gate valves are open good clean fresh water is pumped in.

I don't know if there are stipulations with a clam needing a long-time set-up, but I've heard that they need some spectacular light.
