The giant clams belong to the genera Tridacna and Hippopus (Rosewater, 1965, 1982; Yonge, 1980) in the family Tridacnidae
. Less well known clams harboring zooxanthellae belong to the genera Corculum (Kawaguti, 1950) and Fragum (Kawaguti, 1983a; Ohno et al., 1995) in the family Cardiidae.
Giant clams, bivalve molluscs in the family Tridacnidae
, harbor symbiotic zooxanthellae in the zooxanthellal tube, which arises from the stomach (Norton et al., 1992).

Mytilidae and Pteriidae have a wide and strong association with some corals (as Stylophora pistillata; Porites solida; Pocillopora verrucosa; Favites abdita; Favites fluxuosa; anal Goniastrea pictinata; Acropora pharonis; Montipora venosa; Acropora humilis, Anacropora spinosa and Montipora spongiosa), whereas Pectinidae, Arcidae, and Tridacnidae
have a low coral association.
