    What do you still have left? Were you able to get your tank and stand sold? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    What To Consider When Buying A Large Tank

    Based on personal experience, I like the 7" socks way better than the 4". Much easier IMO to turn inside out for cleaning. I throw mine in the washing machine when my wife isn't home :) Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    What To Consider When Buying A Large Tank

    I have two tanks that share a common 165g sump. One is 300g and the other is 540g. The 540 is on a raised foundation in our sunroom and I put some bottlejacks and 6x6s under it. I've found with a large system that automating your water changes makes a big difference. When i do water changes, i...

    Gigas - any sources?

    I picked up a couple when Liveaquaria had them on sale a few weeks ago. Pretty cool to have gigas available again. Here is a shell from one I had years ago that grew from about 6" Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Vinegar dosing and pH

    Thanks. I do add a few cc's every hour using a BRS dosing pump. Total system is around 800g and I'm adding 75ml per 24 hours. I could set it so it doesn't add any in the middle of the night Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk

    Vinegar dosing and pH

    Hi, For those of who use vinegar for carbon dosing, how much does it depress your pH? I'm trying out the nopox homebrew (mixture of vodka and vinegar) but it drops my pH to like 7.6 at night. Any way to still use the acetate ion as a carbon source with depressing pH as much as you do with...

    how to reconnect 6091 wave controller?

    I have two of the old style waveboxes - the ones with the hockey pucks and 6091 wave controllers. I haven't used them in years and am trying to figure out to sync both of them up. Do i just link the master cable to one and the slave cable to the other?

    Teardrop clams?

    Does anyone know if teardrop clams (T. noae) are even being imported and sold anymore? Haven't seen any in quite a long time since they were split away from T. maxima into their own species, T. noae.

    Gigas may be coming back

    Haven't seen or heard anything new. Like a lot of folks, I get Liveaquaria's daily stock emails. Based on the limited info, I don't expect we'll see any until maybe late this year or next spring-ish sometime.

    Gigas may be coming back

    I agree as well. I have both a 300g and 540g - both on the same water system.

    Gigas may be coming back

    I agree. I had mine in a 300g and it barely fit. Currently I have both a 540 and 300 running on the same system, so hopefully they will actually be for sale again. Yeah, I think I spent somewhere between $50-75 for mine (I had two at one time, but sold one years ago). They do grow amazingly...

    Gigas may be coming back

    Like some of you folks, I had a gigas clam years ago. It grew from about 6" to 24"+ in about 6 years until I lost it during a tank crash. Several years ago, the importation of them has halted because no one was farm raising them again. I've seen rumors that Biota has started aquaculturing...
