Hi. I was wondering if you could keep a giant clam in a 10 gallon. Maybe a crocea? thanks.

certainly, as long your light, flow, and water chemistry meet the clam's needs.

one thing to pay particularly close attention to: in a tank that small you will need to be very, very mindful of your levels of calcium and alkalinity. these guys can suck up a surprising amount, and in that small of a water volume you will need to be very diligent about your testing and supplementation.

Crocea clam is a hard clam to keep and then put it in a 10 gallon tank. Not a good idea.

Everything that has been said is true. Which is what makes it virtually impossible to accomplish.
