The Cross Barred Venus Clam, (Chione cancellata), is a sand dwelling bivalve that is hardy in captivity. They filter organic matter from the water column to eat, and while they may provide some filtration benefits to your aquarium, we carry them mainly for curiosity purposes. These are the shells you may see in asphalt aggregates sourced from the Caribbean. Their shells are very hard and are not always crushed by the machines.  

The specimen you will receive will be about the size of a dime or a nickel in diameter. They can grow to about the size of a quarter.

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.
