    Terrible Advice Tuesdays: Clams need to be fed some kind of phytoplankton in order to thrive in a saltwater tank.

    The rest of the story: *This is actually good advice…only until a certain point. *Small clams (about 2″ *[5cm] and under) aren’t fully synthetic and will need to be fed phytoplankton.

    However, clams that are 2″ and over are fully synthetic and don’t need to be fed. In fact, some articles suggest feeding a clam could do more harm than good.

    If your clam is getting sizable (over 2″), just give it plenty of light, good calcium levels (420 range) and it will be fine.
