Appropriate Home
An aquarium with an external power filter with a BIO-Wheel, and a maximum of 1/4-inch of gravel. We know that these clams do well from 65 to 82 degrees F., so they will do well in both cool water aquariums without a heater and warm water aquariums with a heater. Click here for more about cool water aquariums, or click here for more about warm water aquariums.

Recommended Diet
These clams are filter feeders, filtering what they eat from the water that they live in. They seem to do well in aquariums, and we have kept them for many months.

Compatibility

Size and Lifespan
These clams are usually about 1" to 1.5" across the shell, but we have heard that a few are as big as 2" across the shell. We don't know how long they can live, but they can live for at least a few years.

     

Customer Comments

 
The clams you are advertising are most likely Corbicula fluminea - a highly invasive species that is rapidly spreading in US waters - displacing native species.
 
Unfortunately, when people tire of aquarium species - or they become problematic they elect to 'dump' them into a pond or lake rather than finding them a home or digging a hole and burying them. Aquarium dumping is a major pathway for invasive species.
 
One good example of what can happen is the snakehead problem that has been recently made national headlines. The hundreds of thousands of waterbodies across the US that are infested with elodia, milfoil, salvinia, azola and other aquarium plants are another prime example of aquarium dumping that is costing the taxpayers billions each year for control and eradication.
 
You have a wonderful website and I will no doubt purchase some cichlids from you in the future. However, I would encourage you - and other mail order houses - to include information that explains why these animals and plants should never be put into public waters - or even into private ponds where there is a chance that flooding may spread them into public waters.

Reply. Hello Pamala. Thank you for your important comments. We strongly agree with you and discourage everyone from putting any living organism including clams into a pond, lake, or other public body of water.

We know that that we must responsible or the government will have to make more laws that limit the kinds of pets we keep.
