It can take 3 to 10 years for a giant clam to reach a relatively mature level (being able to handle certain reefs by itself), but they continue to grow. The giant clam also reaches sexual maturity somewhere around or above 10 years, so they could be considered fully mature then. But they continue to live on and grow, and some are estimated to be 150 to 200 years old (http://www.itsnature.org/sea/other/giant-clam/).
Giant clams (Triconda Gigas) reach maturity after about 5-7 years. However, many of these giant clam species can live up to 100 years or longer!
