Precious find Kat. I LOVE the clam. I dont even think its an ORA or it would have been more expensive. You lucked out and got a wild gold max with little black spots. Not exactly rare but definitely uncommon. Opened very nice and attached in one day- Super healthy. Dont go crazy with the feeding ( she tells me they are alweeeez hungweeeeez), I dont want to stay up all night testing your water again, but you know I would.

I love this guy! I go looking for him whenever I get over there. :D

I'm sooo jelly of your Apex. (get it? I'm jelly... snort)

I'm holding off for now due to impending summer tank move. You're going to be my Apex goto gal. I'm so gonna pick your brain. (In a nice way, not a brain eating zombie way...)

Your coral growth is fabulous. I love seeing the improvement over time. Everything is looking amazing and healthy.

Thanks! That lobster is a show stopper for sure. I'm now able to contro apex from the ipod touch. yay.

I disagree, they have me at their mercy with so much cool stuff!

:) Planning on an Apex review this week for sure. In the meantime, here's an interesting graph of visitors to my tank thread from all over the world in the last 12 days

Looks that way right? It's not truthfully. My rocks are very purple and multiple colors of purple making it seem like I have corals when I really don't. :)

Especially when you have a kick ass thread.

 

I didn't think your tank could get much more full. It's gonna pop one of these days.

SMS

Me: :( 6:52 AM

Zeph: What's wrong!!?? 7:56 AM

Zeph: Don't tell me the clam croaked 7:57 AM

Me: He moved to the substrate and attached himself there. This place has low light. :( 8:01 AM

Zeph: Leave her alone she is fine trust me 8:23 AM

Zeph: Don't you dare try to move her light is fine they don't need as much as everyone thinks. Tan/gold need the least amount of light. It wants to be there that's why it moved 8:41 AM

Me: :( okay. My buddy vinnys crocea did the same thing and then died a few days later. :( 8:42 AM

Zeph: Croce as are more difficult than maximas. If your worried just give it to me :D 8:45 AM

Me: CLAMNAPPER 8:48 AM

Zeph: Mua ha ha ha haaaaaa! 8:49 AM

 

Emails

Kat: see pic of where he went

Zeph: wasnt she high up on the rockwork? She couldnt have "walked" down there. Did she fall of the clif and just straighten up?

KAt: she was a good foot to 14 inches higher up that this new location. she had attached on the high ledge too. where she is now she could not have fallen there, it is under the ledge so she'd have to fly there or do like a u-turn under the ledge.

Zeph: There is no way in a million years it walked down that cliff...no friggin way i dont believe it. Never saw anything like that in all my clam years. Especially after it attached it wont detach. I think something messed with it last night, and knocked it around, but i doubt you have anything big enough in there to do that so i am perplexed. i would guess snails bull dozed her off the cliff...has to be.... If you are SURE it walked down there on its own, and i dont believe it, then leave it there. If you think it fell put her back up on the rock work. Your call reef gurl

Zeph: I confess. I snuck in last night to steal it, but something scared me and I dropped it.

-Clamnapper

Kat: HA HA! must be my guard cat.

Zeph: They're little threads, wiggle it and gently remove it, should be fine

Kat: okay

Zeph: You have epoxy putty?

Kat: YA

Zeph: make a cradle for it

Kat: okay

 

SMS

Zeph: Wiggle it and pull gently it will come off 7:23 PM

Me: I did, I also used a very sharp blade. Its done but I feel terrible. I'm going to cry if it dies. You have tissues? 7:28 PM

Zeph: Lol...it will be fine I am proud of you 7:32 PM

Me: I need a scotch 7:43 PM

 

Me: OMG! I'm watching this clam hop out of the cradle again! This is unbelievable, its a bunny rabbit! Ima have to rename it bunny. 9:48 PM

Zeph: Lol...super healthy that's funny . 9:49 PM

 

 

Me: Mornin'. I was up all night checking on bugs the bunny clam. She started hopping around, got some pictures. Likes the sand the best, u sure she's not an imposter maxima? 7:07 AM
