  • Clam Bonanza!

    I went to my LFS today and found a rare blue squamosa.



    Very cool.

                I couldn't believe it when I saw it in the store. They bought it off a hobbyist who got it when it was 2" and grew it to its current size (about 5").

                Now I have to decide if I want to keep it, or sell it. Let the bidding begin :smash:

                          Dang nice clam. I would love to get one, but aren't they going for more than 400?

                          very nice though, maybe if i can get one locally i will.
