Thanks Keith. I really wish I could get a good shot of the new maxima. I just can't get the colors to come out and haven't had a chance to break out the DSLR. The fiancee will be gone for the whole weekend so hopefully I don't get too distracted by the time to myself to forget about wanting to do it. It is a beautiful clam and it has me paranoid/hyper vigilant as I don't want it to die off. It has good growth on the shell, where my derasa is also showing growth...but the small b/w maxima I just don't see the growth. These small clams boggle my mind, and it better not be on its way out. No signs other than that, just don't know if I'm missing the growth or what. I just want a massive b/w clam dang it. Oh if I could only be calm and collected when it comes to my clams...or when I notice something 'wrong' in general.
It brings up an interesting point though. With having enough in the water column to keep a coco worm alive for over a year, it is curious as to what a small clam is lacking in my system.

Quick update on things, as I tend to get caught up in doing other things and forget to talk about them. The caulerpa overall has me nervous. I'm checking it several times a day afraid that it will go sexual and dump nutrients into my tank. In terms of piece of mind and this being relaxing has been ruined. Regretting this stuff and wishing I had some cheato or something else, though wasn't available or even offered. I'm sure things will be fine, but still nervous about it.

Lol just kidding, are you sure the ammo test tube was completely clean? Same thing happened to me once when there was a little bit of dried test solution (from a different test) left over after rinsing.

Bringing a real oldie back from the dead with that one. In this case, it was from an accidental overdose on the tank with ammonia. Either way, don't worry about bringing this relic back. It is a great examples of us all making mistakes. This thread is filled with them, and the tank is still in good order.

I'd hook you up with some chaeto but I'm up in Canada, you would get a package of frozen food.

I know right? With how the weather is here right now there isn't anything coming in, period. Pet stores have very light live stock because flights are being delayed and no one, atleast in their right mind, are ordering things that will just arrive dead. We'll see how things warm up and improve.
