Keep in mind, mantle patterns on all Tridacnid clams vary, so any photo shown is a representation of what a clam of that type looks like. Patterns and colors can vary quite a bit from clam to clam so the odds are you clam's mantle pattern will look much different. Still beautiful, just different.

Squamosa Clam's coarse texture of its outer shell is often used as refuge by small invertebrates and even by other small clams. Its fluting refers to the larger-sculpted waves of its shell, typically numbering only three or four ripples per side. Beginning with relatively slow growth, the Squamosa can attain sizes of a little more than 12 inches, in time. Mantle shades vary from dark brown to light gold mottling often noticeable by pronounced blue and green spotting at the edges. On the lower end of light requirements for Tridacna species, some relocating of the clam may be necessary to help the Squamosa find the right amount. In order to make moving the clam easier, it is recommended to initially place the clam on a flat piece of Live Rock that could then be moved with the clam. Though the Squamosa produces ample nourishment in the wild, many aquarists recommend supplementing the diet of the Maxima with preparations such as Marine Snow or Kent Phyto-Plan, or Kent Zoo-Plan.
