    I do a lot of voluntary work at my favourite LFS. As a present the manager gave me a young squamosa clam yesterday afternoon. :) I find the shape of its shell to be pretty interesting. The large scutes seem to be home to a number of amphipods (But luckily, no pyramid snails!). As far as...

    So I've had my squamosa clam for about a month now.

    Hey everyone. I currently have 5 clams (1 squamosa and 4 maximas). For some reason my Squamosa closed all the way yesterday and has yet to open. It is very odd to me because my Squamosa is very big and healthy, and rarely ever closes all the way (in the past I have had to move him out of the...
