    FS: MONSTROUS Squamosa Clam -- 12+ and HUGE Pagoda Coral

    Post by bvysochin on Wed Oct 17, 2012 3:08 am

    I got this from a friend going through a divorce.. He had it for a few years, and the clam started to get shaded, as is evident by the white spots.. I've had it for about 3 weeks now, and the color is rapidly coming back, but I'm realizing that I have absolutely no place to store this thing! It's currently under 4 T5's, approx. 4" under the water, crammed between some rocks. It appears to be really healthy, and is super responsive.. It will require a very large space in your tank, as the shell is about 11"+ , and when fully open, the clam is over 13" wide.

    Pics are taken under temporary lighting I threw up to house this thing.. 3x ATI AquaBlue, and 1x BluePLUS.. that's partially why the colors appear washed out.

    I don't know what these things go for.. but I believe it's pretty uncommon to find them this large.. this will definitely be a show piece once all the color returns. I'm looking for $150, and this will need to be picked up at my house..

    Alternatively, I can bring it to RAP, on Sunday, the 21st, in a 5 gallon bucket.. but I will need paypal in advance before I even consider removing this thing out of the tank.

    Please PM if interested.






    I also have a large Pagoda cup coral for sale.. It's pretty big, at least 6" x 7". I simply don't have the room for this thing.. It would look great in someone's large display.. very healthy. Looking for $75

    I just replied to your thread on RC. I didn't know you had the pagoda as well. Let me do some thinking.

    You're welcome to come check it out in person. I'd make you a deal if you bought both too. The Pagoda is huge.

    I'm afraid I'm going to pass at this time. Sad

    Wife reminded me of the problems I had with clams in the past. And I need to get things stable and my corals growing first.
