Re: feeding clams
I have a maximus blue clam about 1 1/2 inches. I am curious to their feeding habits. I feed the tank every couple of days with Kent's Phytoplankton or "Marine snow". The last couple of days it does not seem as "happy" as it has been. I have had it for about 3-4 weeks. Do they need anything more than this?
bill37, my opinion only....
You have a baby clam, right now they can't even really process food from spectrum yet, they need to be fded, I recommend feeding it directly.....
Hardware: 2 Liter Plastic Bottle
baby med plastic syringe
Cut the top 7-8 inches from the bottle opening to the middle.
Place wide end over clam in the tank (small opening on top)
depending on tank size, use plastic syringe filled to 1mm of phyto
squeezed directly into small opening.
Leave it for anout 1 hour and remove.
My smaller clams are fed this way, though you probably do need to upgrade your lighting. Good Luck
