    So I got my clam today, found a shell for him to attach to and acclimated him to my tank. He opened up within 10 min and he reacts to shadows very well so I think he is healthy. I'm very happy to have him in my tank and I welcome all comments :)

    Also i still don't know how to spot pinched mantle so if it looks like it let me know

    Very pretty, you will definitely want to keep it near the lights.

    Yea I loved it as soon as I saw it.
    Is it stretching for light?
