INFORMATION ABOUT KEEPING TRIDACNA CLAMS
Water Condtions & Lighting
Tridacna Clams need strong lighting to survive long term because they receive most of their nutrition from the products of photosynthesis, we highly recommend 250 or 400 watt metal halide lighting or equivelant, such as intense LEDs. Clams, corals, and all invertebrates require saltwater that has full strength natural saltwater parameters: Specific Gravity 1.025-1.027, alkalinity 8dKH, calcium 450+, Magnesium 1300+. Clams have a better survival rate in tanks that are not the most nutrient poor. Clams do well in tanks where there is a good fish population that are well fed thus resulting in slightly higher nutrients in the water that clams then utilize.
Coloration in clams is greatly affected by viewing angle. All of our photos are 'top down' shots. Color will vary in your tank especially if viewed from the side and under different lighting. Photos shown are accurate in our tanks photographed under T-5 fluorescent lighting or out in our greenhouse under natural sunlight. Due to changes in viewing angles and with so many lighting possibilities in different tanks you may see different coloration.
