Very nice! I never have luck with clams not sure what I do but they never seem to make it. Might try a small one in my sons reefer 170 and see how it does.

Looks like my derasa, to me.

thanks! if you want to try another one, i'd bypass the little guys and get one as large as you can. they are obviously more pricey but i've always heard the small ones take lots more care than the bigger ones.

Nice clam. Definatley a derasa based on the smooth shell and the mantle pattern.

thanks, zee! i get teased a lot by fellow reefers about the anthelia. i've tried scraping it off the rocks numerous times but it just keeps coming back which i knew it would.
