I want to get a red clam and I think I remember seeing a picture of one somewhere online but I can't find any right now. If anyone has seen one in an online store or something let me know.

Not too red, but would likely color up under the proper lighting. I think this species, Tridacna crochet-a, requires metal halides.

Might you be reffering to a flame scallop?

i think he wants a tridacnid clam with red coloring...the closest i've seen is the orange-pink derasa clams from ORA. (I have one). under the right light angle they can look slightly red but more or a pink-red or rusty red color.

I just found this in another thread, looks pretty red to me

Here is my first clam, a gold Maxima i think. its still very new and idk if it should be open like this - it looks more open than the other maximas i see here..

hey, thats my maxima lol! (unfortunately she is gone...) I would call that a more brown-red color, but i guess it can apply. she was a Gold Maxima clam btw.

I have actually never thought that maxima clams can have any red coloration, until you just pointed that out to me. So i suppose its possible among the gold-brown colorations of maximas.

amazing, i never knew maximas had pink color! I bet that one could sell for at least $1,000 pink ones are probably that rare.
