Mitchell Posted December 1, 2010 Share Posted December 1, 2010 So my clam was delivered today. I thought it was dead because the clam's bag had leaked and part of the clam was out of water, but I did a sniff test and everything smelled fine, so floated the bag and put the clam in my tank. Even with my lights off the minute I put the clam in my tank it started to open up. I can't believe how fast it has adjusted. My cleaner shrimp didn't jump on it and eat it, so that's good, it does tickle my clam's mantel with its antenna when it walks by, but hopefully the clam will get used to that. If I move my hand over the clam it quickly shuts, so that's a good sign. I have never had a clam before and the only clams I have seen in stores are maximas, so I am not sure what a healthy derasa looks like, but it seems as happy as a clam (couldn't resist saying it ) I am going to be picking up some food for it tomorrow, whats the best brand of phyto? Here are some pictures: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
