My Gigas passed away last year in June after having him more than 10 years. I thought I would share a couple pictures and explain what happened.
What happened? I bought a Maxima clam from pacific east aquaculture at the last Ohio Reef swap that had Pinched Mantle Disease. It killed 4 out of 5 clams I had including a blue squamosa. It broke my heart to see my Gigas slowly die.

That is a ribbon eel that started hosting in the clam after 5 years together in the same tank.
