    One T. Squamosa and one T. derasa in a 50 breeder.

    My past lighting scheme was 3x39watt T5HO bulbs. They were kept under these conditions for 5+ years and have grown from only a few inch specimens to at least 10 inches each.

    Recently I switched the lighting up and for the last couple of weeks have had them under only 2 54 watt T5HO bulbs slightly overdriven with and IceCap 430. This is a short-term lighting scheme as I plan to build a DIY LED to accompany the T5s.

    Well my Tridacna Crocae seems to have settled down. I've got her placed 8" from the surface, about 11" from the lights. 4x24w t5ho. She looks pretty happy right? Would love to see others pics!!!

    WOW! Is that the same clam?

    Another question Do you have any flow on your clam at all? Even just a little, maybe enough to move the mantel slightly?
