Lets see some ultra clams, colored up Squamosa's, colored teardrop Maxima's, black and white Maxima's, blue Derasa's, and what some call Maxea's but what I call brightly colored up Croceas...

Here are a few of mine that I have had in the past and some that I still have.

One of my current black and white Maxima's, 2".


My second current 2" black and white Maxima, 2".


My current 4" blue spot Squamosa.

My current 3" blue teardrop Maxima.


A better pic of the blue teardrop.


My current 5" blue Derasa and 6" Squamosa I just lost.


And a better pic of the blue Derasa.


These are all the rare clams that I currently have, I will add more pic's of rare clams that I have had in the past soon.

Where's my fellow clam collectors at? I know you are out there!

Here is one that I didn't take the pic of but I do own it, it should be here in two days and I am super excited.... I will post up some pic's when it gets here.

5" blue Squamosa, I hope it's coloration is true to this pic!%

Don't know if it is "ultra" or not but it has kept it's color really well for me.



My old blue spot Squamosa. I really miss that clam....

Here are some painful one's for me to post, I lost all of these in a one month period back in 2006 or 2007, bad times... I don't know what they died of, not pinched mantle fish nipping, or snails. They just closed up ever so slightly and then within 3 days were dead. I tried everything I could think of to save them, in all I lost over 20 clams that month.

How big is the Giga's Stacie?

Here is a pic of mine right before I sold it, it grew 5" in one year and I was downgrading my tank size so it had to go.

That is awesome Dave! I am just now explaining to my wife that is OK for her to buy me a clam because other wives do it!

Just snagged a black & white maxima this past weekend. It's still a bit small (about 2.5") and I apologize for the bad pic:

And here's a pic of my derasa. Nothing too rare, but has great coloration:
