I think they need a seperate tank since when they sexually reproduce it makes a mess of the water. The breeding distributors say that by stressing the clams they can provoke them to reproduce, but everyone I have talked to that had clams release stuff in their tank spent hours changing filter socks and cleaning their skimmer cups.

Apparantly they urinate into the water in clam farms in vietnam to induce spawning. Maybe you could try that germanman... lol

I must have a sick sense of humor becuase I haven't laughed so hard as I did when I read OM3n's response. I'm not sure I would be up for that if I were Germanman.

I've heard about it as well..lol. In fact, one local reefer doses his SPS tanks with Vodka. He was sick with some sort of bug and was on medication and drowsy him made the mistake of double dosing. He was in a panic and sick out of his mind and he decided to pee in the tank to adjust the water. Even with the antibiotics in him I hear the tank survived. Made for a hilarious thread the next day.
