Not all clown gobies nip at clams though.

ya i think it is very uncommon i actually couldn't find of any simular stories of them nipping at clams. I wouldn't let that stop you from getting one cause its very unlikely he will have the same behaviour

Be sure to get a clam that does not get to big. Some can shoot water out of the AQ and that's not fun.

Shoot water?!? Wow thats something. Won't get past my hood though. Yeah my LFS has small Crocea Clams about 5cm (3 inch) long. Very nice too.

yeah, they don't really shoot water but when you frighten them and they close up fast they push alot of water that can cause a good size wave in a small tank.

Ahh that makes sense. BTW I was at a LFS and I saw a big clam that had a shrimp actually inside it. Any ideas cause it really intrigued me.

That's pretty odd. I have a blue crocea clam and my yellow clown doesn't want anything to do with it.

yes it was very odd he would literally sit on its shell and as soon as the clam tried to open he'd bite, pretty aggressively too. Poor clam had white bite marks all over.
