There is nothing to prove because it has already been proven. Tanks need normal maintenance.Totally! I love the discussion. There were just a few folks (read above) that went so far as to question my humanity. The discussion encouraged me not to waste my time on daphnia and pursue other things. I am totally curious about folks' thoughts on clams and if anybody else has them in their tanks.
Through years of fish keeping, experimenting, and science - we have found the best way to attempt to mimic how fish live in the wild. It is up to us to provide the fish with proper tank size, water perimeters, setting, and keep up with maintenance.
Water changes must be done on a weekly basis. I personally take as much water as possible during my weekly water change. That means bringing down the water to the fish's back so they just enough room to swim. No matter how you look at it, water changes must be done. These toxins must be removed and the only way to get them out is through water changes. Not changing water in months or years is straight up neglect.
To answer your question - I have not kept clams nor do I know anything about them. It would be something cool and different though.
