Gold Croceas are so under-rated

Personally in my opinion the gold crocea's are the only true ultra crocea's. I have 2 blue crocea's I am thinking of getting rid of.

There are some truly nice blue ones. but they are definitely rare. The trick is finding them with blue pigment that is iridescent, not that dull purple/blue that is so common.

Hey mate, thanks for your kind compliments. It is around 10-12cm, pretty big one. The actual clam is very yellow and blue when you look at it on the side, this is another picture, but very blurry.

Atomikk, that clam to the left of the the Mean Greens is gorgeous. The one beneath is nice too, with a pattern I've not seen before.
