Thanks everyone!

 

dtfleming, I'll likely replace it with a Derasa (eventually), but I've always wanted to say I have a Gigas clam, so I'll wait until it's too big and then sell/trade it off for a Derasa that will be able to stay indefinately.

Tank is looking good Calvin , don't worry about overflowing the water , I have done this more times than I care to admit . It happens to the best of us , at least you can say you were medicated at the time . As for me ......I have no excuse other than just being stupid at the time .

The clam is awesome. It looks great with the dimensions of your tank. Always wanted to do one in a rubbermaid trough plumbed to my system. Just sand, a monster clam, and a big ol' light.

Possibly... My schedule has been nuts lately so it will depend what is going on at the time.

LOL! That would actually still be cool! :D

 

 

I added a new addition to the tank the other day, and hope to add some more corals tonight... Those of you who recall my last tank know these guys are one of my favorites, so I just had to put him in the tank. ;)

I still owe you pics of the new corals (13 of them) alas I can not until I get my memory card back. I did pull out my wifes cam to get a shot of the latest fish addition for you though. Coral pics will come when I get my memory card back. :(

Wicked colors on that one. How's the clam doing? Opening up and stretching the side walls of the tank yet? I'll get my rubbermaid trough ready for him!

What type of wrasse is that..

 

and gigas is so cool, chewing up calcium like mad im guessing. But what a space filler. How long you think you will be able to keep it in the tank

Wow

 

tank turned out real nice.

 

That wrasse adds a lot of color to the tank and it also has character.

 

Nice work. Wish i had a basement and owned a house to do something like this.

Thanks, Clam is actually looking different, still opens and looks heathly, but the mantle color is changing... Not sure what is up with it, but I'm trying to locate a new home for it. :(

Yep, African Leopard Wrasse.

LOL!!!

 

So I'm trying to find a new home for the Gigas, it still appears healthy but the mantle is changing color a little and I don't want to risk the health of the clam so it's currently For Sale. :( Not sure what I will replace it with or when but I do hope to get a clam in the spot again... I still need to get some more pics, and I will as soon as I find some free time. Thanks for the all the feedback and words of encouragement, I really appreciate it!

 

On a side note, man it's humid!!! No condensation issues, but living in Colorado, humidity is rare except in my basement. ;)

I'll trade you for the clam in my tank. Would be a good swap. My guy is sitting about the size of a nerf football right now. Would fill your spot nicely but not be too crazy big. Now to just convince my wife that driving to CO is a good plan in order to trade clams with someone.
