he is spawning.

in our tanks clams spawn as a survival instinct. how long have you had him? have you changed anything recently?

you need to prepare a water change, run some carbon and keep your skimmer clean and running @ 100% to prevent any negative effects from all the gametes in the water

yes, you need to do water changes now. i would have thought he'd have stopped by now but with the water so fouled he may spawning over and over.

a spawning incident in our tanks is brought on by stress and is a survival instinct, there may be something wrong with your water params. for now just try to clean the water by skimming and running lots of carbon as well as the water changes.
