Goolwa Cockle in Marine Tank

Caught some cockles, and thought I’d put him into the tank to see what he’d do.

Immediately, he came out and started to try and dig himself in. The next day, they had fully dug in. Nonetheless, I took him out. Didn’t want him to die and rot in the tank.

Curious though… anyone else tried putting them into tanks, and have they survived? They are cold water creatures, but we catch them in summer? Interested to hear feedback!
