I'm almost positive it was some type of internal parasite that killed all 3 or thy just shipped horribly and I got the best of the 3 that was still dying. It wasn't pyramedial snails I checked it over also My water quality is fine I keep acros alive, colorful and thriving. IMO all clams require about the same water quality it's just Maximas and crocea require more intense light. I was more trying to save it then anything so I guess I learned my lesson lol. Ill definitely be trying another deresa in the near future.

I think the reason for trying larger clams, not out of them being easier to care for as myth states, but easier to see if there is an issue, like pyramid snails.
