Cross Barred Venus Clam

No image set
Species Availability:   No stock

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.
