I told my wife my new skimmer was free .

I dident tell her the fine print that the skimmer was free since I will recoup the cost in increased energy efficiency over the next 5 years and lower salt bills

after a trip to the store, inspection and finding out that he's decided to charge $169 I just walked away. I mean they were cute but not much bigger than a walnut. I remember when I started reefing they were like $69 and 5 inches long. I'm gonna wait till they start selling some of those again...

Not sure what the going prices for Maxima clams over here but when I did look at one claim the price was like $189 and that was with my club discount that our LFS-sponsors give us. But the claim was much bigger then 2" more like 4-6". And I was told to be careful when buying small claims they are harder to take care of then the bigger ones not sure if that is true or not.
But I always having to sneak stuff in when buying for the aquariums.

this is not intended to rub it in or anything to the OP but:

my lfs usually have 2-4inches of derasa, maxima, squamosa clams for sale around $30-50. he's doing an amazing job because you can buy ultra blue maxima, gold maxima, black/white maxima, and many other color variations for the price. I'm sure location makes a difference and I'm in GA btw
