Small maxima with PMD


I have a maxima clam which Iíve had around 3 weeks now and Iíve noticed it has a pinched mantle at one end.

After reading the sticky I decided to try a fresh water bath. I used Rodi water, matched the temp and put an air stone in for a few hours then added the clam for exactly 30mins.

I added my clam back to the original tank in a different location. There is no other clams in the tank.

Clam did ok, and next morning is open, but same area still pinched will a little stringy sercreation Around the infected area of the mantle.

How long do I wait to see if the treatment has been affective?

It is only a young clam and only around 2Ē.

This picture was taken before treatment.



If in doubt ask!

Wait a few days and see if he improved.
The reason why I recommended place the clam far away from it's previous location is to keep any parasite that my be around the previous location to attach back on the clam.
