    Looking nice, how old is it?? Is that the one you mentioned in your mature tank thread?
    Does water always taste like salt and poo????

    Speed - The clams (T. squamosa and T. derasa) are 8 or 9 inches (shell length).

    jojo - Thank you and yes, this is my only tank... for now.

    Thanks Rob. It is currently my only tank and it's been running for something like 16 years.

    Tridacna clams are one of my favorite reef animals. I'd love to have several more but don't feel like I have the appropriate lighting to keep other species... that will change someday. Now I'm going to go check out your tank thread...
