feeding live clam


New member
would feeding live clam on the half shelf in QT, encourage the fish to go after clams when placed in a reef ?

thats my reason for not feeding clams .... anyone have different experience or thoughts ?

I have avoided feeding a live clam for exactly the same reason. If I was going to feed one I would remove it from the shell and put it into a feeding clip.

I think you would be conditioning the fish to eat clam in captivity and it would carry over to your dt. I wouldn't do it unless necessary to save a fish from starving.
