This species of clam is found through the Indo-Pacific. They are sought after in the aquarium trade thanks to their brilliant, vivid colors.
Found living on the surface of reefs or sand, or partly embedded in coral,the small giant clam occupies well-lit areas, due to its symbiotic relationship with photosynthetic algae, which require sunlight for energy production. (via Wiki)
I photographed this purple colored clam in a tidal pool.
