Sorry to have not kept everyone updated. I already bought 6 of them about a month ago. 6 VERY small clams, destroyed my 55 gallon's severe cloudy water (mostly greenwater but THICK). After 3 days the water was crystal clear, and yes I was worred about starvation. However I bought some marine phytoplankton and have been adding about a tablespoon a day. The water stays crystal clear, and the clams are all still alive. Can tell by my weekly un burying them. I have small black rocks as a substrait, and am going to move them to my 40 gallon with craft sand (when wet it is like mud, its SUPER fine).
And freshwater asain clams Do not have that spore like phase, the main reasion I chose them, but they are also much less likely to breed in captivity as well.
In conclusion, solong as the mates you have will not bother them I fully recommend them!
