    Just curious on how many clams you all have right now in your tank. I just got back from RAP and added a few more so now I am up to 7 again. I sold 3 of them a few months back, now I wish I hadnt. I have Maximas, Derasas, Squamosas and a Crocea. The smallest is about 1.5" and the largest is over 8". I will post pics of them after I get off work.

    I can't keep them for long in my tank. Not because of the tank. I am a stickler for coloration and it takes me time to find one I like. Then it grows out and someone comes over and see's it and the the "Sell me your clam" haggling begins. Gets to the point where I think I can find a better one and I am clam-less again...

    I did see a gold maxima I liked and now can't wait for the new system to be ready for it.

    One thing I did notice is that mine suck calcium out like crazy. I want to have several but I wonder how much dosing I would have to do.

    I have one growing 8" Squamosa in a 55, will be moving him soon to my 185. Will be getting more for both tanks.
