Steamer Clam as Reef clam?

Well i put one in and aside from Ness snails raping it for the left over dead skin etc, It looks fine. On the internet it said they breed at 73+ so 78 shouldnt be a problem. Any other info?

Everything I'm aware of that goes by "steamer clam" are cold water species. If that's the case, I'm thinking it won't do well in our tanks.

I'm curious where you read about the breeding at 73+. I've grown up digging clams at my families Hood Canal, WA property and it doesn't even seem like the air temp reaches 73 F very often. Do you have a link to the info.
