    Looking to get it here. What do you think? Or would live aquaria be a better choice with their guarantee and all?

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Magnett2,

    While it looks like a very colorful clam, it looks small. I would go with one of our sponsors and get a clam over 2 inches.

    What type of lighting do you run?

    I would be putting it in a 29 biocube hqi 150w 14000k phoenix. I will look at the sponsors too. I do want the clam to be successful so something over 2 inches would probably be better. I have never had one though

    I have gotten healthy clams from Reef Empire myself. And I have heard good things Wet Thumb Frags

    My crocea came from Reef Empire as well. Well packaged healthy specimen with acclimating intructions and no hitchhikers.
