I have no money...

but the ban on Maxima clams coming into Canada has been lifted and my LFS just got some in. I've always wanted one but now they're like $139.

What should I do?

Be responsible and remember I have 2 gorgeous thriving reefs at home or throw it on my visa card like the rebel I am?


Choices....

I know right, that much for a clam??? I mean, it doesn't even move...lol

They are cool looking though. Only 2 inches too. It's been years since they've been around though...

A 2" clam for $139.00 is a bit steep, but I've seen 3" clams here for that price. Wholesale prices have been rising some, but they haven't doubled yet. Since they are new in the country, I would wait. Once they flood the market the price will drop.

i would watch out for that divorce paper if you do pull the trigger on the clam i would wait for the price to drop or see if any local reefers have the clam on sale.

Maybe I can just slip it in and she won't notice....lol

Oh she'll notice, she's always wanted a clam. Maybe a $50 nice big clam but a clam. Maybe I'll walk over at lunch just to check them out...lol
