  Special Requirements and Information:
Everyone loves the look of clams in an aquarium - but beware! These are only for experts! You can get by with a 75 gal. tank, but 100 gal. or more is preferred. They don't really get around so the food has to pass over them in order to eat. Setting up a regular feeding schedule doesn't matter to them but it will make sure that you feed them regularly. When they go - they go, don't expect to be able to save them. This is one of the many reasons that experts only should keep any of the Tridacnidae family.
