    Looks more like a bivalve from the picture. Some of my bivalves from TBS survived, most didn't. Pop in in a QT or sump till you get a firm ID.

    It does look like a bivalve. The are harmless filter feeders. We just found another baby one in our tank.

    I appreciate you chiming in as well - thank you! I will keep him in the sump until I'm home from work later, just in case!
