We ordered some clams from Clams Direct about 3 weeks ago and they are doing very well . My question is can we now add a few more? Have a 90 gal with 250 MH. Is there a limit to how many clams we can place in a tank?
I keep about 40 clams in my 150 gallon. I would add more if there is room - because I like different colors/patterns from clams.
You can add more, but I would do so slowly. Make sure you are meeting the needs of your existing clams - before introducing new ones. More clams in a tank means that they will be competing for food (calcium, nitrate, dosing of DT's). Otherwise, light is already there - but some area will be brighter than other (directly under bulbs vs on the side).
Just a up date on my clams that I bought from Clams Direct. After almost 2 months, they are doing very well. Have not lost one They are expanded well and the colors seem to have gotten a little bit brighter with my lighting.
Think my better half is going to order me one of those clam tanks from Barry as well. That would be a nice surprise.
