Was this taken through glass? It is quite a photo. Well done. I have a giant clam shell but had no idea what it would have looked like if still inhabited. Nice work

I like so much the sharp and clear details got on the image, specially if shot through glass.
The texture and forms of the giant clamp are so beauty and delicate.
You built a great composition with all that these marine creatures and its bright colours.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

You should follow diving lessons:-)
Nice image. Must be a beautiful world...
A brilliant shot of this clam and considering that it was taken without the aid of a fill-in flash (or so the evidence seem to indicate) it makes it so much more special. Once again you've shown what a great photographer you are by capturing this magnificent aquarium shot with perfect details under rather difficult circumstances. Contrasts, colours, levels, and sharpness are well balanced.
Those iridescent spots all over the mantle lit up like little lights on a Christmas tree. You also managed to arrest perfect details of the tentacles (around the edges of the inhalant syphon at the centre of the clam) which normally tend to sway around and move with the flow of the water and thus become exceptionally difficult to freeze under these low light conditions. Just remember, even thought it is an aquarium shot, clams need water movement and normally the tanks that house these animals are specially adapted to provide to their needs. Tridacna crocea clams are usually found in the shallow areas near the shore where there's a lot of water movement.
Very well done and TFS.
PS. I have so much catching up to do, but I'll be in touch. Talk to you soon MF.
