    I know these are hard to find, but if anyone comes across one, please let me know.

    More BAR supplies? :)

    I remember seeing some kind of hugeass clam in the display tank at Amazon Aquarium in Alameda. I'll stop by there tomorrow.

    Thanks Norman,

    I have seen big clams before, but the blue squamosa or deresa is very hard to find......what do you feed your frogfish? Are they hard to keep?

    Doh! I'm a clam less-than-newbie. The one at Amazon had blue, but it wasn't a solid blue rare.

    Been feeding the frogfish small chunks of frozen fish like silversides and stuff I get from the chinese markets. I started him off on live ghost shrimps and trained him to eat frozen stuff.

    Not hard to keep if you have a clean stable reef. Best if you don't have high temps or nitrates or spikes in those.

    How is the quality/pricing from Clams Direct? I've never shopped for a clam so I don't really know.-Jim

    Jim, I have only checked out the site and the prices seem average. Don't know of anyone who has ordered from them before. The store is closed now, but I usually like to see clams live to see they react before I buy....but if they ever get a one that I want I may pull the trigger and buy one. They are local in California, near Sacramento I think.

    Aren't you off the Tonga? Have a safe journey...let me know if I can buy a Clam from you guys out there. : )
