    In my welcome post I mentioned that there is a clam in the tank and someone asked to see a picture of it. So here they are.

    This clam was a birthday present from my wife, who knows almost nothing about reef keeping. She went to the LFS and they sold her this. I'm certainly happy with it and I love her to death but I image that a clam in a small system isn't the best idea anyone ever had.

    Anyway, here are the pics. Thanks for looking.

    The blue is strictly from the lighting, it's actually like brown and light green.

    Couldn't get a clear picture from the top but this is a better representation of the coloration.

    My clam is on the edge of a rock, so I can look at it top-down-ish. I think the angle of reflection needs to be as close as possible to the angle of the light to see things.

    Love the top down look
