    Lol, I wish. I just work very hard and long hours. I repair garage doors in florida. A trust fund would be great though.

    Clams are looking great. I lost my only clam in my recent "gfo" episode. Reason 23523525 I will never run GFO again.

    How can you tell the difference from clam to clam?

    Pattern on the mantle, type of shell, colors on the mantle. Each type of clam has a unique look to its species. Squamosa, derasa, maxima and crocea are all different looking. I own all of them, clams are so pretty to look at. Challenging to keep happy but well worth the effort.

    Ok. Thanks! I will do some studying to get more familiar and I will most certainly be owning one of those beauties when I get my tank. One of the coolest sea creatures out there for sure.

    I agree. I'd recommend a squamosa for your first clam. Very hardy and make sure its not under 4 inches. Good luck and hope to see pics soon.
