    Trouble with Inverts - Shrimp, Clams, name it

    Hi, I am having a heck of a time with inverts and it's only getting worse. Tank: 70 gallon mixed reef. Kole tang, 2 anthias, bi-colored blenny, and 2 clowns. Several SPS and LPS (SPS grow well in the tank but LPS is hit and miss) and softies (grow really well). I lose cleaner shrimp every...

    Maxima Clam & Green Emerald Crab

    I just purchased a Maxima Clam today and I have a Green Emerald Crab that is checking it out. Are these two combatable with each other? Or will I need to dispose of the crab?

    Bristle worm predators?

    So I recently added a Maximus clam to my 30g reef tank and it is adapting great but every night and sometimes in the mornings it will have a bristle worm or two on the shell, I've been removing them with tweezers but I know that this is not sustainable. I always wanted to get a clam so removing...

    I want to put a clam in my tank. I’m not sure how big it will get, or if my 20gallon is fine. Can I get a clam? How big will it get?

    What is my clam doing?

    I've had this clam for about 4 months and I don't know if I just never noticed it doing this but today I noticed it was expelling some sort of milky/cloudy substance. I got a video of it doing it which is linked here in a YouTube video. Is this normal or something I should be concerned with...

    Nipping or too much flow?

    I've had a 2" Maxima I purchased off divers den for about ten days now. I had initially placed it on the rockwork and it opened up. A few hours after I noticed it was not open as much. Ever since then it hasn't fully extended its mantle. I do have a yellow longnose butterfly, but have not seen...

    Clam growing out of tank?

    Hi Reef2Reef, I've had this squamosa clam for about 8 weeks in my quarantine and I've been battling pyramid snails there ;Inpain The thing is, I can't move the clam to the display before the pyramids go extinct, which will not happen for a few more weeks (or longer) while the clam is growing...

    Turban snail on clam mantle

    My trochus snail is attached to the underside of the clam's mantle. It's been there for a few hours. The mantle is extending normally. Should I just leave them alone, or do something so that the snail can't climb onto the clam again? By the way they are newly bought and are still in the quarantine.

    I have the aquatic life hybrid fixture with 4 t5 bulbs (ati blue plus) and two radion G3 xr30s. It is the 4 foot fixture over a 130 gallon 5 ft tank.

    Over the past few weeks my clam has slowly been bleaching. The original spot was very very small but now covers two ruffles of the mantle. Also the parts that are bleached are pulled in. After reading a bunch there was only one article that seemed to have an answer, the cause being an infection...

    Crocea Clam with Ai Prime?

    Hey everyone, Do you think that a crocea clam could survive with an Ai Prime if I place it fairly high in the tank? I know that they require more light than other clams but they would all outgrow my tank. Any suggestions?
