Are you target feeding the crocea clam? I'm want one, but don't have LR and I think I'll just wait until I culture phytoplankton.

To my knowledge I was aware it was a filter feeder but I also heard you can feed liquid pearls? My friend's father has had his tank up and running for quite some time now and he has two larger clams 1 on each side of the tank and stated sometimes he feeds them liquid pearls but they are filter feeders.

I hear you! I have 3 tanks going too, and all 3 are in my bedroom. Its very peaceful though. I love the hobby the maintanence is a pain to keep up with but it gives me something to do. Eventually I am going to only keep the 55g salt water I seem to favor this a little more than my other tanks. (2 fantailed goldfish in a tank, and then my 30G Fw)

Our hobby started many years ago also due to a fair fish. we have had 6 tanks running. Ended it all after a heater blew a hole in it coveted 60g hex community (stay away from Marineland heaters). 1 yr without fish was too much for me lol
