The Echinopora genus is often found with Clown Goby species from the genus Gobiodon bopping around its surface. These energetic little coral gobies hardly reaching 2 1/2 inches, and they have a toxic body slime so other fish don’t bother with them. They are quite content living among Hedgehog Corals as well as Acroporas, much like a clownfish and an anemone. Offer them plenty of space for individual territories, and these happy Clown Gobies may even spawn in the reef aquarium.Read More
The Carpet Anemones are named for their immense size (sometimes more than a meter/yard across) and “pile” of numerous colored tentacles. These are unfortunately very difficult aquarium specimens that “shed”, otherwise can/do sting and poison tankmates. Unless you have a HUGE system (hundreds plus gallons of water) and/or a substantial sized system to dedicate to just this one animal (plus possibly host fishes), you are advised to look elsewhere for an anemone species.
Of the three species of Carpets that are commensal/symbiotic with Clowns (and the Three-spot Damsel), only H. mertensii has good potential for being kept in a “mixed reef” setting… the other two species are found anchored in sand… with no other Cnidarians w/in physical or easy-chemical reach.Read More
Tridacna derasa is also referred to as the Southern Giant Clam or Smooth Giant Clam, and is the second largest of all the Tridacna spp., reaching a size of 24″ in the wild. Unlike most other Tridacna spp. that have a large byssal opening, Derasa Clams have a narrow gap on the underside of their thick, smooth shell. They can easily be confused with their close relative Tridacna gigas, especially when they are very small in size. T. derasa can be identified by having six to seven vertical folds in their shell which they can close completely, where T. gigas has only four or five vertical folds, and is unable to completely close their hinged shell.
Tridacna derasa have a broad range in the wild and are found in the Indo-Pacific, Central Pacific and South Pacific as well as the Coral Sea. They occupy outer reef habitats on both sandy and hard packed substrates, and can be found either solitary or in small aggregations at depths ranging from 10 to 60 feet. All Derasa Clams entering the aquarium trade are cultured in the Central Pacific and South Pacific Ocean. Although they can be found in a variety of colorations and patterns in the wild, the ones aquacultured for the aquarium trade are primarily gold, brown, orange, and yellow, with vibrant blue or green trim edging that surrounds the mantle.
T. derasa will arrive unattached to any rock or substrate, and prefer to be placed in the sand or in a recess of a rock, as they do not attach as firmly to the substrate or rockwork like most other members of the genus. In the home aquarium, Derasa Clams require moderate to intense lighting to thrive as they contain the symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae, and receive the majority of their nutrition from the light through photosynthesis. Smaller T. derasa that are 2″ or less in size are much more sensitive to very intense lighting as their membrane is much thinner than larger specimens.Read More
