Thanks Matt... There are many tanks better than mine IMO... I love clams as well... I have a total of 10 clams with 2 of them being approx 12" derasas and an Extremely fast growing Gigas... The gigas is putting on about 1.5" per month... I have been cleaning up the tank quite a bit trying to make some room on the SAndbed but it just never seems to work out... I am planning on throwing an Aquascaping party at my place sometime in hopes of getting a Better Aquascape... Although I just finally got the closed loop installed after 2 months of Debating it..

Thanks again for the compliments,
James

Woah! James, how do you ever leave the house? I would be late everywhere because I wouldn't be able to break away from the tank. Looks fantastic! Could you list out the equipment and inhabitants?

Very nice! I see you have it filled very high :) Is that because your overflow gets dirty or just too much flow for it? I think clams are great too!

Regards,
Kevin

Yeah the Overflow is dirty right now... I planned on cleaning it today... I am pushing an AM3600 for the return and a pcx40 that runs the Chiller so the overflow is pretty maxed out...

The tank was a hand me down from a fellow reefer that originally came from Envision Acrylics about 5yrs ago... It was pretty badly scratched and I put about 10hrs into removing all the scratches... I removed all the scratches by hand while the tank was filled as I am in a fairly small Apt so having an Extra tank that size laying around while I buff it out is not really an option... My Apts let me brace up the Floor in the area with 6x 12x8x12 Concrete Dek Blocks and 4x4 beams that run Directly into the blocks... Only problem that I am finding is I am having to run 20a Extention cords from close by outlets as there isnt Enough Juice in the area...
