    It seems my Crocea clam started spawning last night after the tank move from the change in water parameters. Does anyone know how often Crocea clams spawn and how large they would be before they reproduce?

    Water was still a little hazy, but as below you will see the cloud of white liquid expelled from the clam.

    Really not cool if left unattended. Thats some serious protein shake which will foul your tank if not taken out via heavy skimmer and a few water changes.

    Agree, your water conditions must have been great! But, be careful, I would watch water paras closely! Nitrite and ammonia spikes , but cool man!

    The skimmer is quite the beast, so seems everything is ok. Time to go hunting for clams ;)
