Thanks everyone for the great advice. Been a long time since I had something die but it has to happen sometime. I wonder how long clams live.

Tridacna clams, on average, live about 100 yrs.
Here's a good article.

Wow, that is a real loss. You'll come across another one that you won't be able to pass up.

Now, if your tank is full I know of a great home for a purple brain! lol!

Do you have any idea of how long I've been looking for one just like that!? You can not find anything even close to that. How long have you had that one now? What a beaut!
