Hello everybody, I was just wondering which fish do you keep with your clams. Also has there been any problems between fish and clams in your tanks.

In my personal tank I keep the following without incident:

2 blue-green chromis
1 yellow psuedochromis
1 foxface
1 blue sided fairy wrasse
2 false prcula clowns
2 kupang damsels
1 copperband butterfly (this can sometimes be a bad fish to mix with clams, use with caution and research)

soon to add 1 6-line wrasse (last one jumped to it's ddom)

Tank is a 240, with 3x400 watt halides and 160 watt actinic

I've got a T. crocea and a blue-rimmed derasa in with a Coral Beauty, Tomato Clown (but with three stripes - apparently it's a 3 Striped Indian Ocean Clown :confused: ) a Sunrise Dottyback, a Scooter Blenny and a Purple Firefish. No problems so far (touch wood.)

I have also kept a firefish, assessor and damsels with the clams with no problems. However I had a midnight angel that nipped at the clams.

i keep the following with my 2" squamosa and 1.5" maxima:
  1. 1 pair of ocellaris clowns
  2. 1 sixline wrasse
  3. 2 pairs of H. erectus seahorses
    [/list=1]

    no problems here except the one time that the max closed on the tail of one of the seahorses. the seahorse was able to get out pretty quickly and nothing like that has happened since (touch wood; hehe, crazy brits!). i'm planning on moving the horses to a tank of their own in the near future though..
