You don't feed them. They are filter feeders. They simply filter water through their "mouth" and eat microorganisms. I have one big clam in my tank and it's cool to watch. They don't do much or move often but it's cool when they do. It looks like they stick out their tongue and pull themselves along.

Nice picture. I have heard pretty mixed reviews about people being able to keep freshwater clams alive. Good job for keeping this guy for so long. They are super cool little critters IMO.

I remember when I had a apple snail die on me, he didn't come out of his shell for a week so I picked him up and it smelled like dead apple snail. At that moment I accidentally dropped him on the floor and brown liquid snail gushed all over the carpet in my room.
