I don't quite get what you're saying here. You mean most clams die in tanks because there isn't enough nutrients in the water for them to eat?
How do you ensure there is? Should you take a few flakes during feeding and mash them up in your fingers very fine like snd then put it in the water for them to ensure they eat?
I too have been looking at getting one for my 10g community tank. No one locally sells them by me, so I'd have to order online form liveaquaria.com. Any additional info would be great.
