    thanks. i feel better now :)

    upgraded the lights for a clam. is there such a thing as A clam. oh now your in trouble. lol thanks its maxima. i was told by the place i bought it from it will open more than pictured that its often hard to get a picture because the clams close when you go over top of them to get the picture. so im hoping it opens more as they said :)

    I believe they are referred to as either Fijian or Tahitian Maxima, they have the broader body and usually very intense greens and pinks.

    The green sold me, and the image does not even show the mantel fully extended.

    Yes I see pink ones every once it a great while. I had a terrible addiction to clams a couple years back. They are so beautiful and the fact that they suck up nitrates is an added bonus.
