opinions please on clam type. .

Hi again all,

Good friend was just looking at my tank, and feels this is a "toger" clam I have. Not a term I've heard (or perhaps don't remember) would love your opinions. Thanks.

I lean more to your opinion also. He thinks it's this other kind because of the size. I'm wondering if it's just a word from an area people use. Thanks for the input.

He could be referring to a tiger deresa clam maybe? That's just the pattern but it's species is T. Deresa

That actually makes a lot of sense. I'd bet you're spot on with that.

Thank you, I love it (except when it decides I need a salt water shower) I am hoping it stops getting much bigger, running out of room lol
