    Have you seen this Clam

    Beautiful clam a little to rich for my blood.http://www.reefermadness.us/RMD02220199.htm

    Also rumor has it the maxima's are going to be a hard find do to over harvesting.
    Anything over 2" is going to be either too pricey or a very hard to find.

    That's a sweet clam. Apparently they ate one very similar on survivor (according to an RC thread). Wonder if they know it's probably the most expensive meal they ever ate.

    Very nice clam but at that price is enough to make a big hole in my pocket. Wonder if they ship it in a gold box.

    According to the info I read you'll be lucky if these brightly colored teardrops live a year they do not do well in aquariums.
    You would be better off buying a less colorful teardrop.

    That is why I posted the second link. It is such a shame it was very beautiful. I have an addiction to clams but to spend that amount of cash on something that will die in a short time.
    I have seen several of these brightly colored teardrop and the XL price tag to go with them in TO they always seemed to be gapping.
