New Blue Spot Squamosa

I posted some pics on the sellers thread but I thought everyone should get a look at this monster! This is one large clam, 9" length, 8" wide and 7" tall.

I'm trying to think of a good name for him, any ideas?

Here it is in the 5 gallon RC bucket getting the temp up:

Yeah, I drove up to Milwauekee, took the kids to the zoo and picked the clam up on the way back.

I bet those pics don't do it justice. How about "Squirt"?

How about Blue Ball.

How much fun would that be for your guests? "hey come in the back room and check out my Blue Ball!"

Looks great. It really is a nice clam it has colors that really cant be archived with a camera you have to see it in person. I've seen that clam nearly everyday since nait got it. I live right next door to him.

I missed out on seeing your tank when I was up there! I was skattered brained after the muddy zoo experience with the three kids. I've got to get back up there to spend some time with you guy's!

Have your party LFS tour bus stop by my place for a couple of brews and a visit with the clam!
