It's like feather dusters. You buy them, and they are huge. Over time, they get smaller and smaller, even though you can't tell, and eventually die. It's the same with clams, except the just get weaker and not as healthy.
And Bamboo Shrimp are not a close comparison at all. They can take whatever they need from a straight outflow of a filter, and still consume algae/flakes/etc. Clams are not mobile and require completley from the water they are in.
