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.
well ok lets see not the situation is changed i now have several clams in my reef. check out specs in link in my sig. has anyone had experience of them spawning and producing young in their aquarium. i know of a book but he doesnt speak on how just shares the pictures.
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.
