Thank you for showing us these photos and videos!
Those clams are fatter looking than I'd imagined. They are rather walnut-looking critters. I do hope you'll get to see a few of them, at least sometimes. Do they eventually outgrow their shells and leave it behind? Just curious. Thanks for pointing out the siphon in action. That surely must have been fascinating for you to observe so closely. Glad you captured your lucky shot, that was neat to see as well.
Your tanks, fish and plants are all so healthy and interesting. These shots were a treat to view.40 gal fw: 3 Platy; 9 Cherry Barb; 16 Neon Tetra; 21 Rummy-nose Tetra; ~30 Red Cherry Shrimp; an Assassin snail

Thanks everyone! Really appreciate the feedback.
Rob is spot on about the clam shells. Honestly RG, I have no idea how the clam went missing in the one shell. It was closed the entire time BUT upon closer inspection, I did see some cracks in the sides of the shell. My guess is that some sneaky fish or possibly snail was able to either get inside or extract the clam, like an assassin snail would extract a snail from its shell. Pretty strange.
Really hope I get to see them surface at times. I've heard that they'll stick their siphon out of the substrate to feed, as they're supposed to be filter feeders. Though, I wonder if they can eat like earthworms? Dirt w/ nutrients in one end and out the other? I don't know and I expect their activity under the substrate hasn't really been documented anywhere.
Yep, he's a looker. I was taking a look at pics of my old pair (their parents) and he still has some growing to do. Some color changes, as well. I forgot about the blues you see in their adult form. I'm sorry that yours passed. Maybe we can work something out when/if I get these guys to spawn. I'll give you the AC/Matt/lost apisto discount.

Yeah, if you can get those apistos to spawn and have viable young, I'd love to try another little male
