    Default clams kelvin?

    does anyone know if it will be a sucessful chance to keep clams in a 20,000k mh tank. i know some clams prefer to like 10,000k because int he wild they are less deep, i also heard that thier color tends to be less electric with the blue water. if anyone has had expeiance with 20,000k clams please lend out ur advise, thanks

    Not all 20k bulbs have enough PAR to keep a clam happy, I guess it definitely depends on what bulb/ballast combination you have.
    60g Tank: 10g Fuge/Sump, Current Nova Extreme 4x54w T5HO + 4 LED, Wave2k, 2x Seio M620, Euro-Reef RS5-2 Skimmer, 130 lbs Live Rock, 3" Live Sand, LPS Corals, Zoa's, Saddle Anemone, Pulsating Xenia, GSP, Neon GSP, Purple Shrooms, Crocea Clam, Pair of Ocellaris Clowns, Yellow Tail Damsel, Coral Beauty Angel, Black Sailfin Blenny, Eel (Gymnothorax tile), Coral Banded Shrimp, Cleaner Shrimp, Sally Light Foot Crab.

    I have 400 watt 20 k bulbs and I have 3 clams 1 on the bottom 1 mid and 1 high and my tank is 3 feet deep and they are doing fantastic. I think you will be allright.
