Not sure what type he is yet

still doing research I'll chime back in as soon as I know

yes she got him at aqua-mart , she wouldn't tell me how much

UPDATE:

after doing some research it looks to be a blue crocea clam

I have a blue crocea clam as well and just about the same size. About 3 weeks now i've had him on the sand bed. He twists around sometimes - should I put him on the rocks?

Make sure it is sitting so the mantle is facing up so it gets as much light as possible. Good luck with it, I'm one week in on my new derasa clam. It's my "I quit smoking" clam.
