The Cleaner Clam, Mercenaria mercenaria, is a durable, beneficial, and functional addition to any tank. They are diligent water-cleansers and algae-eaters. Cleaner clams are essential members of any janitorial crew. They do not require light as they will spend much of their time burrowed under a sandy substrate.
Cleaner clams can also be great live food for other larger predatory organisms - so keep away from these types of tank mates if you do not want your clam to get eaten.
it burrowed into the sand first night and hasn't shown itself since. had it 10 days.

I ordered five of these. Three have buried themselves and have not been seen since but the other two are doing wonderful.

Dug right into the sand! Didn't know clams were good for keeping a sand bed clean, but they are. Was glad to have them.

They looked great. One day dormant and into the sand they when.

Ordered ten and all arrived live. Nice size for cleaner clams.

Arrived in a bag with no water, that concerned me. However they were alive and well. they buried themselves within minutes and I haven't seen them since. The water clarity of my tank has gotten notably better.

I have no idea if it's doing any good, but I do see it moving around in my sandbed occasionally. So if nothing else, it's stirring the sandbed pretty well.
It was cool watching it move itself into the sand. That alone was worth the price of admission!

A little larger than expected, but not a bad thing. Arrived in good shape and were quick to start burying themselves. Fun to watch and a great filter feeder to help keep the water clean.

I received clam as part of a reef pack. It burrowed itself into the sand the first night, but has now reappeared from the substrate. It moves around quite a bit and is fun to look for signs of where it moved in the morning over a cup of coffee.

Great at helping keep water looking pristine! May need to supplement feed, but can tolerate great temperature variation! A welcomed addition to pot belly seahorse tank!
