Just an FYI, a certain fish store on 16 ave east has some beauties. Luckily my wife was with me or I could have easily walked out 500 clams poorer. Dang! :biggrin:

I saw clams, but on Cloverdale. We don't even have a 16th.

they're all covered in aiptasia too so perhaps into a qt tank with peppermints would be a good idea initially. they are indeed gorgeous.

I know how to provide my customers with "Clean Clams". One of the advantages of wholesale over transship. ;-)

I bought one in victoria Saturday, what is a good photoperiod for these? I have 2 - 250w metal halides and 2 actinics 72gal bowfront. thanks:idea:

You've got plenty of lighting based on that. I'd say anywhere from 6-14 hours. I'm assuming that your actinics are probably on before and after your MHs, hence the wide number spread.

That sounds fine. Clams - especially bright maximas love the intense light. I would still start the clam off around the periphery before placing it directly under the metal halides. Slowly work your way inwards just like any new addition to your system.
