This guy is giant, have you ever seen one this big? Guy broke down his tank and brought it I to the LFS said it was about 20 years old! Sorry the pictures are so blue, this was in there coral room near the end of the day. And I forget to set the lights to noon. The clowns are 3" for reference. :o

Nice clam! We used to have a member ZelphNYC who had a clam around 30 inches or so and had it for 8 years??? It is too bad he is not around anymore.

They had one in an LFS in Tampa for years. Amazing show piece. For the last six months (I frequent this place often) I kept commenting on how it didn't look good, but they always shrugged it off. The thing just died during Hurricane Irma :(  They said it was around ~18 years old.

seems small for 20, but maybe it's just the perspective

Creative? I haven't been in there since July last year, I was gonna go there soon and look at that clam specifically, sucks to hear it died, it was a monster.

Yep, that’s the one. They had some AC and Chiller issues with Irma that I don’t think they have yet to truly recover from. Their show tank is not what it was. They lost a ton of acros too:(

Just the cost of Ca it depleted over 20 years could be quite a bit. Lol
