Less common clam that does well in aquaria

Comments I've only had one squamosa clam, but I really liked it. They are a bit more hardy than the crocea and maxima, and are generally going to stay under 18". They don't need the light that the two smaller Tridacna clams require, and I was easily able to keep it under T5 bulbs on the sandbed.


Liked about it A hardy clam that doesn't require a lot of light, I enjoyed sticking this clam on the floor of the tank and just watching it grow. It doesnt require a lot of maintenance or attention,


Didn't like This clam doesnt have the colors of many of the other Tridacna clams, but it's still a great choice for aquariums over about 75 gallons. Make certain you keep check of magnesium and calcium levels in your tank, as those can be quickly consumed with any large clam.
