    What in the world is a "Bent Front Clam Tank?"

    Here's a few of ours. I'll start off with older pictures, back when they were in our 75.







    One of the same T. croceas, in our 200.



    A so-so pic of a T. maxima, in our 200.



    T. derasa, in our 200.



    T. maxima, in Angie's Nano, which is very hard to photograph because of the curved glass.





    Here's a couple great pics, of Angie T. maxima, that she took with her Sony P&S.

    A real clam display tank is rectangle with the front tilted in at about a 30 to 45 degree angle. This gives a perfect veiwing angle along with no water ripples. Like looking through a photo box. Make sense? Clams direct used to carry them.

    Awesome clams Sid! Thank you so much for contributing! That Maxima is just wonderful.

    Yeah Don, those are some great tanks for topdown viewing.
    Here is one just for you. I know how much you like big clams
    I sold this one 6 months ago but raised it from 8" to 14" before I sold it.
