Comments: These are clams that you rarely see in live fish stores. Premium clams like these clams are more hardy and more colorful than clams from other sources. Click here for more about our Premium Freshwater Clams.

Origin: This clam was collected from a Freshwater Pond or Stream in the U.S. and is a true Freshwater Clam.

Maximum Size: In aquariums, this clam often grows to be about 2" long, but they live many years and continue to grow slowly for their entire lives.

Behaviors: They stay at the bottom of the tank, and hardly move. You may see them move around when they feed at night, but it is a difficult sight to see. However they leave a trail in the gravel and you can see they have often traveled several feet in the last day or two.

Compatibility: Some recommended tank mates include any community fish, some Catfish and Cichlids may annoy or prey on clams. Click here to read more about compatible groups of inverts.

Temperature: This clam can live pretty well from about 70 to 80 degrees F., but they're probably most comfortable from about 75 to 78 degrees F. Click here to learn about aquarium temperature, aquarium thermometers, and aquarium heaters.

Feeding: Premium Fish Food Pellets. Click here to learn more about and shop online for premium fish foods.

Water Conditions: This clam can tolerate a wide range of water conditions. Probably a pH of about 7 with moderate hardness is best. Most water in the US has a higher pH and more hardness but seems to be OK, so it's probably best NOT to adjust the pH or the hardness of the water. Here in our facilities the water is hard and the pH is usually about 7.8. We ship them in this water. Click here for a lot more information about aquarium water conditions.

Aquarium Size: These guys can do well living in a 10-gallon aquarium, but of course bigger is better.

Decor: These clams do not need gravel, and a layer of gravel more than 1/4" thick will usually fill with bits of uneaten food that will contaminate the water. Click here for more about aquarium gravel.

Live Plants are beautiful, improve the water quality. Click here for more about aquarium plants.

Aquarium Filter: Bio-Wheel filters are highly recommended. A Penguin 200B in an aquarium with 30-gallons is OK. Click here to learn more about aquarium filters.

The addition of Lava Rocks will keep nitrates in the ideal range. Click here to learn more about using Lava Rocks in aquariums.

Life Span: An Aquarium Clam can live for a few years, maybe many years with excellent care, including excellent water and premium fish foods.

Gender: It's impossible to tell a male from female, unless viewed during time of spawning. Females release their fertilized eggs into the water, hoping the eggs will attach to a fish's gills, where they can grow and later release themselves from the fish's gills, never harming their host, dropping to the substrate bed to grow to adults and repeat this cycle.

Breeding: There are many attempts and some successes in breeding these clams in aquariums.

Popularity: These freshwater clams are rather popular.

Names: The scientific name is unknown to us, but see the comments in the email just below.

Variations: There are several variations throughout the US.

We hope you've enjoyed reading these comments.

The clams you are advertising are most likely Corbicula fluminea - a highly invasive species that is rapidly spreading in US waters - displacing native species.
 
Unfortunately, when people tire of aquarium species - or they become problematic they elect to 'dump' them into a pond or lake rather than finding them a home or digging a hole and burying them. Aquarium dumping is a major pathway for invasive species.
 
One good example of what can happen is the snakehead problem that has been recently made national headlines. The hundreds of thousands of waterbodies across the US that are infested with elodia, milfoil, salvinia, azola and other aquarium plants are another prime example of aquarium dumping that is costing the taxpayers billions each year for control and eradication.
 
You have a wonderful website and I will no doubt purchase some cichlids from you in the future. However, I would encourage you - and other mail order houses - to include information that explains why these animals and plants should never be put into public waters - or even into private ponds where there is a chance that flooding may spread them into public waters.

Reply. Hello Pamala. Thank you for your important comments. We strongly agree with you and discourage everyone from putting any living organism including clams into a pond, lake, or other public body of water.

We know that that we must responsible or the government will have to make more laws that limit the kinds of pets we keep.

... the flat clams ... might actually be a mussel from what I can find. Here is a decent website with a bunch of good information.

You may also be interested in looking up how they reproduce.  According to the website, clams are more round and mostly have a centered hinge.  While mussels are more oblong with a hinge closer to one end. Sent from my ... mobile.
