These guys are alive and well in the new 180. 2 derasas each about 12 inches, one bigger slightly and one Squamosa that's just shy of a foot long.

My Cirrhitops fasciatus (aka Blood Red Hawk) chillin on his favorite perch.

Excuse the scratches in the glass. This system is long in the tooth at 16 years running non stop and 2 children that liked to clean the glass,, wouldn't have it any other way! The kids are now moved away.

The Derasa Clam is, as best I can remember, 5 or 6 years old. It was less then 2" when I received it from Blue Zoo. You can seen it has grown. I put a ruler in front of the glass for reference.

Today

Thank you RF. It is an amazing creature. I decided to pull the trigger on a stripe blue rim from LA. It will be here Thursday. I will be QTing that one for 30 days don't want to risk transferring PM to my current one.

Here’s my newest addition. I haven’t seen many deresa’s around much where I live. Hope it does well.

Unfortunately the stripped clam was DOA. LA was great as usual and credited my account. Although I do not believe shipping during this cold spell was the cause I am going to hold off reordering another until the weather gets better.

Oh my! That is a beautiful Clam. It is a Crocea not a Deresa? Is that correct? Love the Hawkfish hanging out.
