    Very nice pickup! Thanks for sharing. Our little gold clam died. The big scoly got turned over somehow and over night it literally devoured the clam.

    Teardrops are hard to find. Pacific east occasionally gets tridacna noae which are true Teardrops and they go for about 300. There maxima clams are nice too. Divers den normally has nice ORA squamosa clams.

    After months of waiting we finally got the squamosa x maxima hybrid clam from ORA. It looks better in person but you can definitely see both species in this clam. Luckily we have a great LFS who was on the hunt for these for some time. All the white on the clam is literally baby blue. I'll keep updates as the months pass and as you can see, the other clams are doing great. 20160521_181116.jpg 20160521_181245.jpg 20160521_181304_001.jpg

    A hybrid, that is crazy! you can really see the squamosa features with the raised pieces of the shell. Excellent find.

    Thanks zissou, we were excited when it came in. I'm hoping it does as well as the big squamosa.
