    im not entirely convinced that it wasnt just a bad batch from the wholesale supplier, barry has enough of a good reputation that bluezooaquatics.com links all clams sales to clamsdirect.com

    when i said bad batch from the supplier i meant a bad batch from barry's supplier, i just dont think if this guy wasnt reputable and knew what he was doing, bluezooaquatics wouldnt stake their reputation on him

    for a couple of years now there has been some clam diseases going around in wild, even around here in st. louis haven't been seeing hardly any clams in lfs around here.

    My LFS got in a bad batch of clams about a year ago; I had bought two of them. The two clams quickly died in my system, but luckily my other two older clams were fine. After that, my LFS did some researching and found that there was a disease going around, and they stopped selling clams altogether for about 4 months until they could guarantee that their clams were not going to be sick. Diseased clams are not all that uncommon, unfortunately.
