    Elegance coral lesson learned

    Been keeping elegance for years. Have had them grow up to be monsters. Recently
    learned a hard lesson wanted to pass along. My elegance was more than a foot across
    and was about 6 inches from a giant clam. One day I noticed a lot of sand on my rocks
    and corals in that area. Was thinking there is a fish burrowing in the sand. Kept watching
    for a few days and oh my the clam clamped down and blew sand everywhere. It blew the
    sand in the direction of the elegance. Upon inspection noticed my elegance was looking
    really unhappy. The sand blown up by the clam had created an infection in the elegance
    and it was dying. The far end of it still look good so I cut all the dying part away and the
    third that was left survived and look good. Reversed the direction of the clam and now he
    blows up on the glass. Second never put an elegance where stand can be stirred by a
    power head or goby or anything else that will kick up sand.

    Hope that helps someone with theirs.

    Wow so interesting. So do you think the clam was trying to kill him with chemical warfare or was this natural for a clam to do this?

    I wonder why the sand caused an infection?
