    I would get a larger clam if possible. Small clams tend to not live very long in most tanks.

    Don't take this as advice. In fact, knowing what I do now I would have waited 6 months. But having said that, I got my first clam about 3 weeks after I set up with no problems, and all three of mine are growing fast.

    Earliest for me was day 3 (4" maxima.) Aquarium broke so I got a knew one. I cycled w/ mb7 and vodka for 2 days. It's really not recommended at at but it worked okay.
