For some reason I started thinking about building a small clam tank. Anyone have one running?
My thought was to build a small 18w x 18L x ?? angled front look down tank.
Probably a 4" dsb with a drain to the display sump and a return pump.
If the thing was only 18" tall what lighting would I use??

Don, with the tank being 18" and a 4 " sand bed you are lookin at a 14" depth. I think you could get away with 175w MH. That should be plenty of lite. Of course you could put 250W on there and have them about 8-10" off the surface of the water :cool:
