Gourgeous tank!  I had a crocea clam for over 3 years when I sold it to switch to seahorses.  It was just under 3" when I got it and 6" when I sold it.  Anyway watch where the mantle meets the shell.  If the clam is growing it will have a white rim of new growth.  Also they enjoy nutrients, even after they are over 3".

And to be honest I think I'm gunna stop adding any new corals for now...wanna let it grow out a bit...and I may increase the kalk dosed into the ato to make the spa grow faster.....clam looks weird today...the mantle is kinda hiding in its shell...like its receding or something...well see

On the last day I saw the clams mantle reseeding....that was my only warning sign, but it was quick....I'll get another clam someday, but only when I have a bigger tank.

What are you measuring that in ? ppb  or ppm

As I was to believe you should be at 0.03 or lower so that seems high to me.

i use the phosphorous hanna checker

Thought so 😊well I still don’t have the confidence to get another clam it’s just too heartbreaking the thought. I salute everyone who makes it over a couple of months 😫

Sorry you lost the clam 😞 Tank looks great though! I had good luck with big clams but they are hard to find seems like. I have never tried a small one before.

The gradual increase in kalkwasser has been doing great for my tank so far.. I feel like in the last couple of weeks I have seen a lot more growth and encrusting.

This is one of my original corals, almost 4 years old now I believe it is a turquoise Favia but I'm still not actually sure.... the fact that it has grown so slow over four years makes me think it is a Favia.

How’s winning?

is there any way you could separate them?

The hammer coral is definitely beating the trumpet coral. I could probably separate them if I wanted to but I think I will let them stay for now

I really dont know why I didnt listen to people when they told me to stay away from gsp....oh well...guess I'll try my epoxy idea. I dont mind gsp, I actually really love the look of it, I just need to keep it at bay.

I think Natalia uses a line of superglue on encroaching corals in her reef bowl, just applies as needed during water changes.  I think Teeny's idea of scraping it off (or at least scraping it back) would also probably work.  Sorry about the clam loss, that's one invert I haven't been brave enough to try lol.
