Keep us posted on this. I wanted to add some mussells or clams to my sump to help with the filtering! Jeff
How is he doing?
I ended up releasing him back where he was found. It turns out freshwater mussels are endangered in VA. They also require a specific host fish in order to breed. So I am going to stick with tilapia for now.
I was told fresh water clams are legal and that I can harvest as many as I want because they are considered invasive. But there is just no replacing the taste of mussels.
