    clams and snails!!??

    Come on Jim - we're trying to give you the benefit of the doubt when it comes to commercial posts but you're not making it easy on us. How many reprieves do you expect to get?

    do clams need/prefer actinic supplementation?

    Supplement actinic lighting for clams: my clams like it and so do I! Once the 6,500k 400 watt sakis kick off, then the 20,000k 400 watt Ushios kick off, then the 10,000k 65 watt pcs kick off, the 40 watt NO actinics and the 65 watt pc actinics look GREAT after a hard day of sun bathing. Jim
