When it gets too big, you can eat it! j/k
If that happens I would happily increase the sump to an 300g Rubbermaid and if it outgrows that I would be thrilled to donate to the local zoo! They don't have a gigas and I'm sure would be happy! If not I'll eat it. Haha

Going to be a bit of a niche market for these, but it’s super cool to see them available again. I remember a LFS (now long gone) had a wild collected monster in a display. Really was an impressive sight.

Oh I so wish my other tank was out of storage and running right now so I could get one. Out of all of the clams they by far are my favorite.

I never have problem with CBB and clams. Never problem.
I have CBB in each of my tanks and I just ordered one. They have a 50.00 coupon with 199+ order, and a 10.00 cash back from previous orders so I guess I just got mine for 140.

They sure don't have the coloration when small, but perhaps just to me, when large they have such interesting colors and textures it's more equal. Of course that takes a while...

Yes, an 8 year investment perhaps
