Freshwater Clams

Clams are an effective remedy for green or cloudy water and especially good at cleaning up after fish wastes. The clam filters the solid nourishment out of the water leaving it crystal clear. They operate best in a few inches of soil or sand. Tricker's customers were satisfied from nature's house cleaner.

Depending upon filtration systems in use, it is recommended to use at least 6 to 12 clams for every 2000 gallons of water in a water garden pool. For the home aquarium, use at least 1 clam per 10 to 20 gallons of water.

William Tricker (1853-1916) started commercial water lily culture in the United States in the late 1800's. He began experimenting in hybridizing water lilies and what helps their growth. The shape, colors and hardiness of his beautiful aquatic plants has withstood the test of time.

In the early 1890's, hybridization of water lilies gave him a reputation as a leader in aquatic plants. He established a water lily nursery and company in both Ohio and Pennsylvania that were passed down to his family until the 1980's when Richard Lee purchased the Ohio company. In 1892, the first William Tricker catalog was mailed to customers across the nation.
