7.5 gallon nano tank. Simple filtration, 7 Pacific oysters ( not all oysters created equal), little dry rock, right now one skimmer on only daytime.

Going on 90 days. Other system 120 gallons has 60 Pacific oysters over 1 year 6 months. See video to get an idea of setup.

Welcome,  This is a very interesting natural concept.  i'm very curious about oysters as filtration:

a) what do they filter feed on generally speaking?  i.e. is it just the food from (purposely) overfeeding those NPS?  Or do they filter and absorb anything else we're not generally aware of?

b) can one expect similar benefits when keeping maxima clams or other type of clams?

Thank you, 

 

a).  pacific oysters in system consume excess food, no3,PO4, bacteria, unwanted algae....etc 

I feed organic powder foods like coral curry from Blue Life USA and a little phyto-feast. 

b).  clams consume no3, PO4, food particular, they need lighting( oysters don't) and not as efficient in filtration as most oysters. So you would need considerable amount of clams to be as effective as Pacific oysters. Bummer
