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.

No they, like snails, grow their shell as they grow. If I'm not mistaken you can tell how old a clam is by the bands running across the shell. Like rings on a tree.

Thanks for the vids and pics Kev. I really enjoyed them.
When in doubt, do a water change.
