Two weeks ago in my Terrible Advice Tuesday post I told you that clams in your saltwater tank only need to be fed until they are 2-3″ in length. One of my readers pointed out an article that I did not find in my research that suggested otherwise. While speaking at a trade show last weekend, I ran into the article’s author, James Fatherree, and I quizzed him on the subject.
James confirmed that clams do not need to be fed regardless of their size. He suggested only feeding a clam if it is in a tank with zero fish for an extended (months on end) period of time.
Therefore, I stand corrected. Feeding your clam is not necessary, no matter its size.Browse the Store! Questions?
