Maxima and Derasa Clams Now in Stock
We just received another great shipment from one of our aquacultured clam suppliers in Micronesia. The Tridacna derasa clams have nice colors and their sizes range from about 2-4 inches in length.

The maxima clams are smaller as usual, each about 1.5-2" in length. Remember that when they are smaller the clams are still developing their photosynthetic zooxanthellae and typically require supplemental feedings with phytoplankton to keep them healthy and growing. Under higher lighting these clams will better keep their vivid coloration.
