Hey folks I got a call from from a buddy of mine that is collecting out of vietnam. Well long story short I orderd a boat load of clams (65 :) )
they should be here around the middle of July, so if thier is anyone that wants some let me know.
They are in the 3 inch and 4 inch sizes. and are Ultra maximas and some hand pick 1 st grade Crocea. Man the Crocea's are unreal.
Am am not sure what you folks think But I was thinking that if your a registered member here you need to get them super cheap :D

OK sounds good, they come in around the 15th of July, when thier in I will post an announcement and you folks come on down. I am not sure exactly what the cost will be (shipping from vietnam sucks, lol) but I think are 30 to 35 bucks for either. Keep your fingers crossed.

How do you deal with quarantine on a clam (or would you bother)? I always felt that there is more stress and problems quarantining than not, but haven't gotten wild stuff in a long time...

JOn that is a good question. The main thing to look for with wild clams is driller snals (pyrmidal sp?). I am getting a wrasse that feeds on them, plus I will inspect them when they come in. The other is disease, this one is tough but does not come up very often, a shipment last year fro the solomons had a gapeing disease, and alot of clams died, but I am not sure how to defend against it.
Personally in my tank, I do the normal acclimation and then in they go.

These are halide only clams?How about 440vho on a 75gal?I wouldn't want to put something in that would be off to a bad start because of light requirements.

I will be kicking my Flame Angel out of my tank very soon so I would be very interested in picking a Clam up. Does any body want a healthy Flame Angel?

Thanks Mike,

I can recall the days of toothpicks in the flukes to get rid of those nasty snails :evil: I will inspect and clean before putting them in as best possible. It's been 7-8 years since the last clams I had... I'll have to brush up on placement.
