Man that clam is sick! Looks happy! Can't wait for the daytime pics. I had a clam, I forget the name. It was blue. It lasted 6 months. Not sure what happened to it but it died.

I saw your Crocea and it looked very nice in the pic. They look different depending on the angle I've noticed with the Croceas.

Yeah I think getting a healthy one is key because by the time they show signs of dying its too late, it began well before that.

LOVE them!

Love, love, love, your clams!

One of the reasons I want a SW tank, just doesn't fit in with my life right now!!!

I am just going to have to go the SW lfs and stare at their tanks again now and they are really far away.
