Just keep in mind they can get up to 4 feet long and weigh up to 440lbs! They get huge!

I believe they are one of the faster growers. I had one that added about 4-6" of shell in about 6 months. If you place them in the sand, I would recommend you place a flat rock or something under ther sand, under the clam. I placed mine in the sand to see if it liked the spot and before I knew it, it had attached itself to the glass bottom. The clam was later lost when I tried to move the clam while cleaning the glass
