That clam was about 3 feet end to end. There are a large number of clams that size on the reef, with the majority over 1.5 feet end to end.

The bicolours range from about 3 inches, up to big ones 6 inches or more. The big ones have blue cheek spines that are quite distinctive. Most of the ones you see are 4 inches or more, with the little ones being very close to the coral for protection.

Bluey is quite the photo ham! he loves attention and regularly tries to taste my camera. Chosing a desktop is quite a drawn out procedure for me these days, so many photos!
