    Hi there, are clams compatible with fish ? I have a few fish, 2 clowns, 1 toby, 2 fire fish and shrimps ... Question, will any clamp survive in such a setup ?

    Hey ZeroCool. They wont survive in your TL-550 or do you have another tank?

    nothing yet, i might consider taking it to the tank that i want (the person i am buying from).

    The main issue currently isnt the light, more the fish .... :(

    The fish are fine although I have heard of clowns hosting with the mantle of the clam stressing and eventually killing it

    That you are describing is exactly what is happening now. I have doubts that the clam will survive ... :(.
