Thinking of keeping a clam in your saltwater aquarium?

We recently added some giant clams to the reef tanks in our office, so we wanted to share our best advice on purchasing, acclimating and caring for clams with you in today's Marine Depot video installment!

Special thanks to David Hammondtree (revhtree) and Chris Baskins (skinz78) at Reef2Reef.com along with MetroKat, Daniel Knop and James W. Fatherree, M.Sc. for some of the amazing clam photos that appear in this episode.
