my do the same thing,,croceaSlowBoat said:Anyone ever have a clam that always wanted to position itself on the side. I have a crocea that repositions itself close to a 45 degree angle not matter what I do.
Also has anyone experienced clams that move about the tank?
Best advice I've ever heard for those roving clams. Works like a charm. I used a larger sized snail shell for my 2.5" clam. I just placed the shell sort of under the clam and it moved over and attached to it. Now the clam doesn't go anywhere.MalHavoc said:Here's a trick for getting clams to attach when you put them in the sand. Try burying a small seashell (a half oyster shell or something) under the clam, an inch or so beneath the sand surface. The clam will eventually attach its byssal gland to it. That way, it won't move on your sand bed, it won't tip over, and if you ever have to move the clam some place, you can just pick it up by the shell and carry it, like a teacup.
