Blue Squamosa clams are among the rarest invertebrates which are quasi-never available for the home reef aquarium. Therefore you can imagine our surprise when we stumbled on a benign looking booth that was packing not one, not two, but two and a half extremely beautiful blue Tridacna squamosa.
You may be asking yourself what we mean by a half blue squamosa clam and bascically, the third specimen had beautiful blue markings on the interior with nice contrasting tan markings on the outer mantle.
With reef gear on the brain we weren’t equipped to take proper pictures of these stunning animals but you can bet your excurrent siphon that we’ll be headed back to that booth with the underwater housing. Although InterZoo is mostly a mission to find the latest and greatest new products, it’s nice to be reminded of why we care about all these aquarium products in the first place.
