    Hi

    I have two Croceas under A.I Sol blue lights. Both are on the bottom of a 28" deep tanks. Both clams have good colour,the mantles are fully extended and they are growing. The largest one has doubled in size in about three years.

    It must have been a predator one clam died right after the other; it was like something was killing them then moving onto the next one. My water is perfect now. for the last year my large clam had been living in mud compared to what it is now. If anything I think my water may be nutrient deficient. I still don't know what killed my clams it sucks because clams are my favorite thing. I had an awesome orange clam from Dave that was beautiful

    Have two tanks with clams under LED. One has been under the AI SOL in a 30 gallon for 3 years. The second is under an Onyx LED, 32" deep tank, clam has been under it for 2 years and grown significantly.
