maxima clam

  1. Lighting
    Hi TRT, I have an Aqua Zonic Super Bright Extendable LED Light Marine 60-80cm 26.82watts and I was wondering if this lighting would be okay for a maxima clam in a 23 x 15 x 15 inch tank? Cheers :):beer:

    I recently purchased 2 maxima clams. After acclimating, I placed them both on the substrate Aragonite Live--fine). My tank is 29" high, and is lit by 3 Ecotech Radion XR15's that come on around 1:00 PM and shut-off around 11:30 PM. They start off at blue and gradually work there way up to full...

    So I got a nice 2 inch gold maxima clam about 3 weeks to a month ago. He has looked great besides never seeming to find a position he was ever happy in. By that I mean every other night I would find him on his side in the morning or in a slightly different spot. I have always fixed him, and he...

    So I need help here. I've had my Maxima clam for about a year now and has been doing fantastically until last Thursday. Did a water change on Sunday to see if that would help but still has been closed. He's been in the same spot for the entire year so it can't be lighting or water flow. He's...

    I think my clam just ate its first spot feeding, I slowly basted it with a mixture of zoo plankton and phytoplankton and as I was doing this it began to open and close a lot. It would open to the extent of the mantel and quickly close, it repeted this throught the feeding. Is this normal...

    I won an auction at my local LFS and picked up a gold maxima clam. It is maybe 2" across, questions are as follows; 1) placement, I have 2x250 Mh lighting so I placed it on the sand bed, however I've read that they are happier on rocks so where should it be?? 2) to feed or not to feed, this is...

    So I've been reefing for a while and did my research before I purchased my first clam. My question is how long is it before my clam should attach himself to the rock? My hermits keep knocking him down. I have him on the Sand bed but on rocks. I can't put it near the top of my rock work...

Do i have to worry about...

    First off let me start by saying I'm new to the hobby and spend quite a bit of time on the sight trying to learn. Thanks everyone that makes this sight what it is. Quick tank history. I was given the tank from a friend who no longer wanted the upkeep...I've had it for about 3 months now. I...
