Well I understand the need to not take from the wild but there are a tun of these things. I suppose it's also a health issue for my fish if there are any parasites.
Ya it was a bad idea but I don't know why it's a bad idea to have fresh water clams.
They do just fine in my tank. I had a bamboo shrimp filter feeder in there as well for about a year. I just added some filter feeder food every once in a while and they did fine. The bamboo shrimp did bite the bullet eventually but he had a good run.
I'm no expert so I could be wrong but filter feeders seem to do fine in my tank.
