About 3"

Needless to say, I'm devastated; two hours later, I'm still trying not to cry.

Don't know if I should start saving up to replace him; if I have a clam-killer, I'd just be throwing money away.

Sorry about the loss . Small clams are definitely tough to keep. I've lost some that were a bit smaller than that guy. They tend to just go as well.

(And I still don't know why my pictures rotate when I post 'em.)
I fixed your pict and yes I"m sorry about the clam ,
the reason your picts come out side ways may be the way you hold the camera or phone but that is nothing more than a guess ,

Almost made the decision to do the clean out on the FW 6.6G Edge and shut it down for awhile.

Thinking it will be a good idea at least to clean it out, move the 4 nano Chilis and B. Merah. Whatever shrimp I find will see about what to to with the couple that are remaining.

Won't have time for a few days due to work schedule. Planned to do it anyhow and need to change the substrate when it gets set back up again sometime in the future.

Called around about the Rock Flower Anemones - found 4 at 2 different stores all basic colored ones for $30 and $40, not interested for those at that price. My closest store had their shipment of fish and stuff come in cold and mostly dead. Are expecting a replacement in a couple days.

Other store still had "not available for order" on their order list. Most of the stores didn't have any or any indication they would be getting any.

Changed the filter floss in my SW HOB. Sexy shrimp seem to be doing good still so far.

Picked up some RCS from a member of a local fish club. 20 for $17. However, it was more like 30 RCS plus a pair of endler fry. Same price. These are very red for RCS, even after transport and acclimation.
Took an old toothbrush and tried to harvest as much pesky string algae in the shrimp tank. Maybe increasing the number of floating plants will help.

Added another dose of meds to my QT tank holding my blond naso lipstick tang ,
I think I figured out why he developed Popeye . I'm thinking it was the sudden altitude change , as he was shipped from California which is sea level to the mountains in Colorado 8500ft above sea level ,
he actually looks better the bubble on his eye deflated but he will still remain in QT for the full 10 days than slowly be weened off the meds like around another 5 days before he can be reintroduced to the display , giving me time to observe if it is completely gone,

This is him before


This him after being in QT 1 1/2 days I know he isn't cured but he looks a lot better
notice the bubble is almost gone

Haven't done anything to the tanks themselves other than feed, but pumped up 10 gallons of ro/di and got the salt mixing for a water change tomorrow.
