Tip of the Day – 11/15/2011


Even though clams often fall victim to the constant harassment and nipping from other fish, especially angelfish, they do occasionally fight back. Several hobbyists have reported that clams have closed up on their fish, crushing its face in between the two halves of the shell. Upon discovery of this gruesome site, most hobbyist try to pry the fish loose, but the stress caused by this often causes the clam to die as well, assuming it’s not already dead from the brutal encounter. Situations like this only reinforce the need to select compatible aquarium inhabitants who won’t kill each other.
