Eelgrass tank

Thought I would share some pics of the new eelgrass tank now that it has a few inhabitants. The fish, hermits, and crabs are just temporarily house in there.

Good work!

Why don't you leave some animals in there?

I think we have the same kind of sculpin. You know the species?

Some of those rocks look very interesting.

Yeah I tried to find as many rocks that had the holes in them from clams, I managed to find some pretty large rocks too.

Boring clams.

Have you ever noticed the tiny holes all over the waterlogged parts of a dock, or on driftwood? Clams.

Yeah those clams are not very exciting Wink j/k

Thats spot on, the clams bore themselves into the rock when they are small and as the grow larger they enlarge the holes they occupy. When they die or are eaten they leave that hole void and erosion does the rest.

Strange, what type of clam? I have clams, but I got them with a shovel.

Do any of the rocks you have still contain the clam?

Yeah most of the larger rocks have them still, as well as some clusters of small mussels. At first I thought they were small anemones because all I could see was the vents from the clam sticking out of the hole until I looked closer and realized what they were.
