Feeding, maintenance, lighting and water flow

Tridacnas feeds both through symbiotic algae, zooxanthella as well as through filtration where they eat dissolved organic substances. Especially small Tridacnas can be fed actively by adding phytoplankton. You can find a collection of suitable feed for Tridacna-clams in our accessories area. The giant clams should be kept in a strongly lighted location is the most important maintenance recommendation for Tridacnas. Regarding colour, Tridacnas exists best in a mix light of 50% blue and 50% white. Good water parameters and a retracted tank are an additional pre-requisite for the long maintenance of a mussel in the marine aquarium. Here you will find additional maintenance - and care instructions for Tridacna maxima and giant clams.

Tridacnas in different sizes for every tank size

Few wrasses have the feature to pick on the coats of Tridacnas in the aquarium. However there can be a risk in the bottom for living mollusks like bristle worms. This can damage the mussel in its sensitive Bysuss gland. We recommend to set mussel on a separate rock or the mussel holder offered by us where the mussel attaches independently.
