Awesome I also have coming clams in my invert tank plus main. In the summer I am commercial clammed in the bay, I love doing it and have found many treasures that I have in my main tank alsoYes as a matter of fact I have. I put some of the tanks substrate in a hang on back filter and put 5 small clams, little neck or tops can't remember, they were little. It worked like a charm. I put cheato on top of that.
I used to work on a small fishing boat in Fortescue, NJ at Higbys Marina. Loved to find treasures from the sea probably why I love this hobby so dArN much.

Here’s a pic of a clam shell with many lipits on it and all were alive n moving plus hade this wild fluresent plant on it plus seaweed growing on it. I actually sent it to @Paul B and he has it in front of his tank and he says everything is still alive on it but fish ate the plant and seaweed. Here’s a pick first day I found it
OMG!!! Thats freaking gorgeous, don't know if your allowed to say freaking but I did. I found an old poppye the sailor type anchor 35 years ago, my mother still has it. Sorry we're off topic. LolPreach I hear you here’s a pic of a old compass rose I dragged up in my net commercial fishing 70-80 miles offshore in 275-300 foot of water
Pic of when I found it and after soaking in vinegar and water for three days
I wound up sending this to @revtree couple months ago because of the great website he’s created I felt he should have my most prized ocean find
There is also plenty of research that support they do filter. Let us know how it does.I do think clams and other bivalves help filter the water and there is plenty of research that supports this.
I collected this guy off the beach in Miami. I think it’s a cross barred Venus clam.
It’s in my 10 gallon macro/invert tank.
Im going to try and collect more and add them to my sump for my 60 cube.
It’s been in my tank for about 3 months now and doing well. That’s why I am gonna try to find more.There is also plenty of research that support they do filter. Let us know how it does.
I really didn't think that the little clams I bought at the market would make it because of my water temperature but I threw 5 in my hang on back and ate the rest, they did make it. My squamosa and crocea are doing great also. You can dig for clams right at your beach where water meets sand. As a wave comes in use a half clam shell or shovel to dig, you will know if you find clams. Any way that is how we did it in Jersey when we went clam digging.It’s been in my tank for about 3 months now and doing well. That’s why I am gonna try to find more.
Reefcleaners has them listed on the site but they are out of stock so I’m gonna have to try to find them myself.
I honestly don’t know how to find them. I think I got this one by chance putting my net into the sand. Hey @Paulie069 what is the technique to collecting clams?
