Substrate Burrower Golden Clams
THERE MAY BE A WAIT ON THESE FROM TIME TO TIME.
Native to: Tropical South Asia, Africa, and Austrailia
Larger than a nickel, smaller than a silver dollar, and usually about the size of a Quarter. You do not need to feed them, they are filter feeders, and they will feed off micro-organisms and waste in your aquarium! When you first get them, acclimate them as you would any other new fish, drop them in your aquarium, and gently push them just a touch into your substrate. They prefer to bury themselves in "small" gravel or sand substrates, so no larger- sized rock substrates. They will move around on their own, and will NOT disturb your plants or their roots.
STOCKING INFO: for aquariums use 1 snail per 6 square inches of substrate space. For Ponds use up to 1 per gallon.
Minimum order: No less than 10Do freshwater clams breed parasites?
QUESTION: I heard that when freshwater clams breed, their offspring are parasites that kill the fish is this true?
ANSWER: No! Their offspring are not parasites, they are clams. The same water filterers not parasites. Not sure where you heard that but that is not true. There is a difference between freshwater mussels and freshwater clams this is where the confusion comes in. Mussell larve are, Clams are not. Mussells are not clams and are also illegal to sell.
