Pics of New Tank & hitchhiking clam?

Here's my tank. I hate the background paper but I will change that as soon as I find one I like. I also need more liverock but that will have to wait till I have more money. There was some kind of clam/barnacle/mussle thingy that fell out of one of my pieces of live rock. Any identification help? It's closed up tight so I'm assuming it's alive. Any problems with keeping it?

Looks good talloulou. Your off to a good start. The hitchhiker looks like a clam. I'm not sure what species. It may or may not survive the cycling. They aren't the hardiest of creatures although I have some turkeywing clams that have been on my rock and doing well for four yours and they also went through the cycling.

Stop what you are doing!!!

I'm not expert, but it looks like you are using gravels instead of crush corals or aragonite sands. Saltwater is closeloop system. You need the live rocks and sand to filter out the fish poops.
