Derasa Clam & Blue Clove Coral Pictures

Thanks to everyone who helped me with the many, many clam questions. I took your advice and picked up this small derasa clam (it's about 2 1/2 to 3 inches). When you view the clam from the top the colors are wild. The picture I took from the top is kinda bad but you can see the vivid colors.

Thanks folks!!



Side view of the clam (it's hidden next to the Kenya tree coral)

Ooh, very nice!

I never knew until MACNA last year about the clam thing, now everytime I look at clams in the store people are probably wondering what on earth I'm doing looking from the top instead of from the side.

Nice pick ups!

Oooooo... I like the blue clove polyps. I've been looking for something blueish for the tank. Those are blue anthelia, right?

No, actually I lucked out and got it at Ocean Reef Aquatics. I am on their e-mail list and they e-mailed that they got a large order in from ORA. WooHoo!
