    I picked up this cool product today and I thought id share it with you all, I wanted to put my new clam on the sand bed due to limited space and because Ultra Blue Maxima Clams need rock to attach.

    And it's only 14.95!!

    Here are a few pics and description:

    Thrives Description:
    Blood sucking snails, protozoans, and stinging anemones can all find harbor in your aquarium courtesy that new clam you just bought. Luckily, Thrive’s Clam Kit has the tools and information you need to eradicate these pests and properly acclimate two clams. Your new clams will thank you later.

    Two ceramic clam holders provide a contoured, hard substrate for your clams to attach onto, so that you can easily move them for lighting acclimation, aquarium cleaning, or treatment, without damaging their byssal threads.

    Each kit includes instructions for acclimation, and for disease prevention and treatment, an acclimation tube, 2 clam holders, a cleaning brush, and ammonia neutralizer for acclimation.

    That kit is pretty darn clever. How much does one of those run you?

    I'd be curious as to what the "clam soak" is. I tend to not trust "mystery preparations". Clams would likely be sensitive to anything that affects snails, for one thing. As far as the other stuff is concerned, most aquarists likely have all of the other supplies, and for less than $15.
