I can't say if the picture above was altered, but I have seen ones just like it in person.
rare enough that we haven't found a match by page 2...rare enough for me.
I guess so. It must be a thousand dollar clam, sure glad its in my tank!
that photo looks shopped to me but i dont really know
Take a look at this
Louisiana Reef Club • View topic - BICOLOR CLAM AND BANDIT ANGEL
and this Rare Bi-Color Maxima pics.. - Reef Central Online Community
It could be bred that way. There was a thread a while back on new clams coming out and some looked amazing. They were hybrids of croceas and maximas I believe. Only a small percentage actually looked really cool, here are some pics of them I have saved. The ones with the green/blue/purple etc. were only a very small percentage of the total "crop." If I remember correctly, it was something like 5% turned out like that. So this bi-color clam could just be a result of breeding and luck.
Yea, they are really nice. I've never seen one in person, and these aren't my pics, but a while back, I believe somebody either on this board or another had one. Many people didn't believe the colors, but apparently they were pretty true to the clam.
It is rare I have a guy in Tahiti that can get them for me but only gets like one a year and they cost $1000 a peice.
