    Pic Heavy New Live Rock I.D.

    Happy Saturday (to most). I purchased 20lbs of deco live rock from which arrived on Thursday, thanks Dan! I'm loving it so far and I am excited by every new thing I see. If you have seen my other posts you'll notice I'm kind of a name junkie, so as you can imagine getting rock...

    Help with Clams and Lighting

    Pardon the unfamiliarity, my grandma gifted me some smallish (2-3 inch) pismo clams that she had bred in her tank, in hopes that I could raise a few of them on my own. She recommended quite a bit of heavy duty lighting equipment, but I'm tight on money and was wondering if there is a way I can...

    What are your thoughts on babylon snails

    So I got two babylon snails... What has everyone's experience been like with babylon snails. Have you had any problems with them... You know eating other things you didn't intend for them to eat? Also I initially didn't think I wanted clams... At least not yet, so I thought I'd be OK. But now...

    Has anyone else had issue with orders from Clammania?

    Cherub Pygmy Angelfish, anyone keeping them?

    I have been trying to narrow down a livestock list for my tank, and another member on here mentioned the Cherub Pygmy Angelfish. I did some reading on them, and most livestock sites mention that 'It may nip at large-polyped stony corals and clam mantles' This seems to be almost the same copy and...

    Best lights for Durasa/Maxima

    My goal down the line is to have either a Durasa or a Maxima clam. Would they be OK with AI Primes for lights, or better with Kessils (or something else)? I plan on having a 160 gallon FOWLR tank as a reference. Thanks!

    Do Maxima Clams Move?

    I bought a maxima clam about 1.5in a week ago. Placed it in the sand bed. After trying to move it I felt it had dug in my shallow sand bed and attached itself to the glass. After being put of town for 2 days. I come back and it looks to have loved a few inches. Is this normal?

    Chasing numbers… Sigh

    I've been doing reef aquaria long enough to know I'm not supposed to chase numbers; yet, I found myself doing that the past couple of weeks. Unfortunately, in the process, I've managed to kill 1 clam, while the other one looks like it's on its way out. Everything else seems to be looking all...
