    Apon's Low Maintenance Tank

    Super flattering picture of Arnold :)


    These little plates allow for the clam to attach and also allows you to easily move the clam!

    Apon's Zero Edge Anemone Tank.


    This thing is actually really cool and you HAVE to see it in person!

    Coral Reefer's Super Big Tank

    Do you still make those clam plates and how much would they cost? And can you ship?

    Haven't made ClamCradles in a while but I can put some together pretty quickly. The 4 inch are $5 and the 8 inch are $10. Not sure what shipping would be but probably not very expensive. If anyone is interested, I'll run a few samples and post on the jestersix forum.

    I'd like a 4" one and could you make 6" ones too?! 8" is pretty big!!

    +1, I like one 4" and one 6" if possible.

    I'm working in the Lab every night this week prepping for the CVR Swap this coming Saturday. I'll try and pull these and get a sample done and posted tonight...I think I can downsize the bigger size to 6 inches....

    Well I will say that the tank tour definitely gave me some ideas, my wife of course groaning reminding me to get the baby room done first though (although I will state she sure as hell wouldn't shut up about Mike's renovation wanting to knock out the kitchen wall in a similar fashion, so it's all about the baby until it's something she likes :D).

    I think I'm going to do what Arnold has, and have a false rock wall, empty space behind, etc, in the space between the overflow boxes, although I want to figure out a way to get back there and siphon stuff out if possible. What do you do about that Arnold? Just not care? Is their pump back there?

    Either way I can hear my wife now, BABY ROOM FIRST!

    Mike I think you're forgetting he does like a 5% water change once a month.

    I don't think he's worrying about the detritus behind the backwall :p

    That true, no skimmer, 5% monthly water change, phosphates are through the roof, why should detritus be an issue :D

    Baby room? Baby will be in your room for like 6 months at least. Plenty time to finish it after birth!
    Do what I did and get her to ok a big tank upstairs if you take out the kitchen wall!

    Hahaha, good point!

    But I don't want a big tank upstairs, besides my garage is a lot more open than yours, so I think that wall removal idea is going to stay a dream for when I win the lottery and move out of this city :D

    I used have a power head pushing water out of the back, but needed to clean it and haven't put it back in yet. Its been a few years. I do have a sea cumcumber or 2 in there...but haven't seen in a few months. I need to look more. I finally saw my cucumber in the zero edge, but its was a year ......too much anemone and xenia blocking the view.

    So are we ordering some clam craddles?
