Asian Gold Clam

I must be turning into an aquarium geek because I found this pretty exciting. After two days in the tank and wondering if he was dead I found him with his "tongue" out digging into the gravel.

Good luck though. Most dont have long term success due to them starving in captivity.

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

Clams are filter feeders which means they pull particulates from the water. They aren't going to eat the fish poop.

They may not eat the fish excrement, but I do have plants that leach decaying plant matter in the water column and also I would use flakes so it can filter the food out of the water not just plant matter
