Hello!

I just got what I believe to be a maxima clam from my LFS, and it seems to be doing very well so far! It was gaping for about 2 days, and my RFA decided to scoot a bit to sting it the first night, but it appears that it's doing far better now. It is no longer gaping, it has some nice extension, and even has put down some byssal threads (after 3 days- I thought it would take about a week). It also still reacts very nicely to me waving my hand over the tank. I have been turning off my pump (but keeping my wavemakers on) and dosing phytofeast every day. Is there anything else I should be doing to monitor the clam or to make sure it's not starving? I had one probably 2 years ago and I think it starved to death- not trying to have that happen again!

You can download Aquarium Cam from the App Store. Then tap the RGB slider on bottom right.

Then slide red all the way up and blue and green all the way down. Like so...

And you’ve got yourself some good photos. Like this.

Squamosa grow much faster but does not require as much light. They are all very easy if you got them healthy in the first place and not have parasitic snails on them. Keep up with your chemistry with some water change and keep Ca and Alkalinity up. That is all you need. On the whole, clams are easy creature to keep. As a novice back in the early 1990's I have no problem with keeping clams

Slight change in topic but which app is it? I don't see aquarium cam in the app store.
