i got a clam a few weeks ago and i'm still not sure what type it is... i believe it to be a crocea clam but not sure.

Crocea.

Where did you get it? I have not seen very many lately.

i live in Hong Kong and there is a street called ting chou street and they seem to be the only clam to buy around here

Do they sell them for food, or for aquarium use? There have been hardly any in the last few years in the American market - perhaps this is why.

im not entirely sure if the we eat them in hong kong... however i know for a fact they do in in south asia and some of the pacific islands but i bought mine from an aquarium store where they were intended for aquarium use
