just wondering when i can add a clam? i set my tank up about 2 months ago and have about 40lbs live rock now and plan on adding about 60 more in my 75g tank. also i have a 4x96w PC's retrofit from ashupply.com and plan on trying out the lunar tracker from www.thelebos.com also.

Before I added clams to my tank I did a lot of reading on them. I have found that most people raising clams are using MH. I am assuming that your tank is 24" deep and that would usually require 250w MH. I have heard of people using PC's for clams but end up having to move them higher in the tank because they require such intense lighting. I would do some more research before adding clams. Of course thats my opinion, I could be wrong

75 Gal. Reef Ready Tank.
2x 250w Blueline 10K MH,
2x 110w VHO Actinic 3,
125# LR,
CC Sub,
Koralin Clacium Reactor,
Ramora Pro Skimmer,
20 Gal. Refugium w/LS and 20 Red Mangroves

I have a large maxima clam in my 72gal reef. It sits on the LS with 4x65 PC lighting. I have had it for almost a year now and it is doing great. I just lost my Crocea to some type of worm infestation. It was also kept under CF lighting. Unless you have MH, I would stay wasy from the super-colored clams, but CF has been working great for me.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
