These are baby hard clams, Mercenaria mercenaria, the same sold in seafood markets when they are adults. They survive by consuming algae and very small particulate food from the water column. If you have a green water problem in your tank, they may help somewhat but we carry them mostly for curiosity and novelty purposes. They like to burrow in sand and extend their siphons above the sand to feed. For best watching results try to set them up in the sand against the front glass.

These aquacultured clams are a better solution for invertebrate predators than our snails as the supply is nearly infinite, and fewer resources are needed to produce them compared to other species. We get these from a scientist who can produce them by the millions. 

These baby clams are shipped at approximately 4 millimeters wide. That is small, about half a centimeter in size. Minimum order of 10.

By default, our packages will ship "Deliver to Customer or Door". However, you should always keep an eye out for the package on delivery day - especially if you live in an apartment with a common mailbox or parcel locker where packages are delivered. You should arrange to be home to accept live packages. Packages are often left in mailboxes and around doors you may not frequently use. Please do not let it sit outside for hours or days if there are live animals inside. Abandonment and neglect will lead to losses. Please be pro-active.
