    Got this today. 4-5 inches. I love it. I'm sure everyone knows this but I just learned it. When you look at a clam from the sides it's completely different from above. I'm partly colorblind so don't know all the colors on this but from above looked light blue and black. It's amazing!!
    This was from the ocean so a chance won't make it. So far so good.
    Just added it so mantle isn't extended yet. But wanted to share. Loves me woke clams

    Yes she has been great. Easy to keep. Keeps moving too which is neat. Doesn't go far, kind of stays in same area. But rotates a lot. I just leave it be.
    I love clams, think they are coolest part of this hobby. Hope this one lives longer than my last one. Had snails and does soon after

    Love this clam. The colors pop. If you stand to the side but up it looks like the inside of clam is glowing.
