20+ Freshwater Golden Clams
Up for sale are 20+ Live Freshwater Clams. These are very large clams and will make excellent display pieces in your aquarium. They are healthy and quite hardy, being captive bred and used to aquarium life. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.
These clams were raised and bred in my greenhouse. They are very healthy and I feed them crushed flakes and pellets. They are peaceful and harmless and will aerate your substrate. They filter your water and eat leftovers. Clams are a joy to have.
I ship Mondays and Wednesdays. USPS doesn’t work on Sundays and we can’t risk stranding the clams in a warehouse for a Weekend. Thanks!

Temperature: 65-85 F (preferably). Freshwater clams have a high range of tolerable temperatures. They can easily overwinter outdoors as long as the pond is at least 3 feet deep and has a decent amount of substrate.
Feeding: Algae water (green water), shed plant material, leftover fish food, and other organic detritus, etc. Freshwater clams are not picky eaters and should easily find food in a pond with some bioactivity. They do a great deal of water filtering and can remove organic material that would otherwise foul up your pond, such as leftover fish food. They do a great job of filtering out algae particles in the water, which make the pond “green”. Preferably, the pond should have some water circulation; ideally put the clams near some water flow.
Housing: (10 gallons and above). The clams should have some substrate to borrow in. Tankmates shouldn’t be a problem.
pH and water: (6.8 – 8.0) Preferably, the water should be on the harder side, but a little under 7.0 should be okay. The clams need hard water to develop their shells. Green and murky water is perfectly suitable to them, as they will filter out microbes and particles in the water to eat. They are hardy and do well with a wide range of water types. Invertebrates in general are sensitive to copper.
Lighting: The lighting isn’t consequential.
Notes: Dead clams have open shells, and are visible, live clams are closed and have extending siphons.
