FW clam w/ cichlids? 55 Gallon Tank

    I've wanted a FW clam for a while now and I was wondering if it could be mixed into my cichlid tank because 1 of my tanks is used for breeding and the other is mostly my dads. So I would need to put it in mine witch is an African cichlid tank. Would they all mix together?

    tough call, how big is this clam, and how big is your fish?

    FW clams are strictly filter feeders and as far as I know tend to die in the hobbyist's tank most of the time. Even if it did survive, they stay buried most of the time so you'd never see it.
