    Default need opinions on getting a clam :big_grin:

    ok so i want to get a clam for my 3.5gal pico with LEDs
    i know that the clam will eventuly ( and quickly ) become to large for this tank
    which is ok because i have a 20gal long that it will go into
    the reason why i want to put a clam into the 3.5gal is for a contest
    so when the contest is over ( in 3 months ) i can move it to my "bigger" reef

    the clam i found that i want is a crocea
    as seen here ( a little down the page ) http://www.michiganreefers.com/forum...ap-sooner.html
    those 3 are 40$ and about 3-4"

    so i just want your opinon on getting one in this tank and what things i need to watch out for if i can get one

    thanks for your help

    like to glue animals to rocks and put disturbing amounts of electricity and saltwater next to each other!

    Would not do it...clams require very stable water parameters that can be difficult to maintain in very small aquariums

    If the thing does croak it could crash your tank if not removed quickly being such a small tank.

    But as for for growth, IME they are slow growers.
