    So we made a trip to the not so LFS yesterday (about 40 miles away, but it happens to be Bills favorite, so we still go)
    Anywho... they had a small (2.5 to 3 inches??) T.Crocea clam that someone had ordered and canceled, so they had it marked for $20 :eek: ... nice score! I think anyway. I couldnt help myself... he was just too adorable.

    pretty nice little guy
    anyways.. had him in the tank for about an hr before he actually attached himself to the rock I put him on, somewhere I read that it takes as long as 2 weeks before they attach to the rock?!? He must like it there?

    Don't worry... I bought a bottle of zooplankton which is getting put on him once a day until hes atleast 3.5 inches

    Congrats! Go pick yourself up some phytoplankton though because zooplankton is too big for the clam to eat :)

    Tie, what a deal...did you luck out with the clam! I'm jealous- Your Crocea might do just fine right now with just the lighting as the clams irridophores and zooxanthellae should start to take up residence in your clams mantle.
