My 75gl with my new Clam.
 
So i live in Mi. and I was traveling to Ohio for dinner one night 2weeks ago and decided to make a stop at Luna Pier so the kids could look at the water. One of them found this live clam that they begged to bring home and put in the tank, of course I wasn't sure but i agreed against my better judgement and placed him in my tank were he now seem very happy.

I love your twig catfish!

As far as the clam I would let him go. They are filter feeders and he will most likely not find enough food in your tank. If you notice he has 2 siphons one sucks in and the other lets water out. His gills filter food from the water moving through the shell. Also their larva can be parasitic to fish, though you normally need 2 clams for that...

Nice tank but I'd ditch the clam.

Who knows what you might have introduced to the tank? Hopefully nothing but I wouldn't take the chance.

I do agree Mikaila and Romad, too bad but do you really want to take a chance.
