Complicated answer here: I changed tank volumes and calcium delivery method when I changed to LED. Ive had a harder time maintaining can and ALK now that I'm not using my calcium reactor.

So he is for sure growing more slowly, but that's likely at least in part due to poor calcium maintenance. It turns out that big clams in small volumes really do a number on your calcium when you're using 2-part.
