Edible Hard Clam

In America these are sometimes referred to as quahog.

They are mostly used as food.

They live in cold water so you can’t really keep them as pets in a tropical reef tank.
The most likely place you will see them, unless you live near a cold ocean, is the sea food section of your grocery store.

The specimens on the picture were sold for human consumption, alive to ensure freshness.
