Thread: asian clams

    Talking asian clams

    0 Not allowed!
    Ok so today my friend went to a retuntion pond thing behind in our neiborhood and found a ton of asian clams so I convinced him to give me 3 so now I got them in a .5 gallon tank to make sure they don't have any parasites or diseases so does anyone think they will survive? I can see there foot coming out and I little tube thing that they blow water out of.

    freshwater clams don't typically survive long term in a tank.
    most require cooler waters, and they also are filter feeders and rely on suspended particulate
    in the water column. of course, in an aquarium with a filter they will likely starve.
    you could try setting up a dedicated setup for them, just be aware that their survival rates typically aren't high.

    Ok would they eat freshwater copepods.

    I believe they eat whatever they are able to suck into their siphons, so I guess it depends on how big/fast these copepods are?
