    Its the small one. The maxi I have had for a couple of weeks and it already looks bigger. The other corcea larger one I have had for a while. the smaller one I just got, but its "mouth" is really open.

    How big is the small clam? I ask because any clam smaller than 2" has a dismal survival rate in aquaria.

    I hope. Its the one not so open. IT looks like it can't open anymore here is a better pic. nevermind computer is acting stupid

    It is also about two or more inches. But so is the other and it is doing well. Before it got comfortable it used to fall all the time never showed any signs of stress.
