    VIDEO: How to Care for Clams Tips to help you purchase, acclimate & care for clams in your aquarium

    Hello! Just thought I'd post my latest addition who is currently acclimating in the bag. :) He is less than two inches long and dwarfed by my gold maxima and squamosa. Cost more than both of them combined too. I'm going to put him at the top somewhere near the gold maxima. I'm very much...

    Will Coral Banded Shrimp or Hermits harm 3" Maxima Clam? It's a mix of brown leg and red leg hermits, and a large coral banded shrimp. Will they be too aggressive to a small Maxima Clam? I'm worried they will tear/attack the mantle

    Hello, I've always wanted a Tridacnid clam and have done plenty of research last year. But until now I never actually mustered up the courage to buy one. Here he is when I was acclimating him, he was advertised as a baby gold Maxima. I think I'm in love. I bought him last Thursday and he...

    Hi TRT, I just purchased my first clam. It is an ultra blue maxima and seems to be acclimating to it's new home pretty well. I'm not sure if I'm being paranoid, but does the mantle look ok? I'm concerned with the right side. Any help will be appreciated.

    So I have a 1.5" Dersea and a 6" Maxima. My Dersea looks fine but my Maxima has this whole to it and I am quite unsure if its a good or bad thing, what are all of our opinions. How are some pics. I plan to move it higher up on my rockwork on Wednesday. Just getting the clam acclimated to...

    I'm probably getting a maxima soon and to acclimate it I will fill a little container with sand and put maybe a piece of live rock in there for the clam to attach and let that sit on the sand bed. After a few days I'll move it up to the next rock structure up and in the next few days move it up...

    I might hop on a really good offer of $30 for a maxima clam that looks around 3-4". I'm just wondering if my tank is able to support it. I use to have a phosphate problem but I bought a reactor and rowaphos and the phosphates are slowly going down. Last check it was .25. I will check other...

    I was thinking of getting some new clams, my Squamosa was one of the first things I ever added to my tank and has tripled in size over the last year. I figured what better way to decide what I want than to see some pictures? Here's my Squamosa Clam. And here are some HUGE clams I saw at...

    Alright so I have a large maxima clam that has been doing great for months, but is suddenly slightly bleached and gaping with the mantle retracted. No changes in chemistry have occurred, lighting hasn't changed, and no new clams have been added recently. I've inspected him very thoroughly for...

    i was going to upgrade my lighting on my 10 gallon with a odyssea 72 watt with two t5 ho 12000 k and two t5 ho actinics so i was just wondering if it can support maxima or maybe other types

    Hi all, I just got this Maxima Clam about two weeks ago. It's only about 2" and I've read that they can be kind of hard to care for at that size, so I'm just a little worried. It seems to be doing pretty well, it's just that the last two days it's mouth has gotten a little bigger. I was...

    I really wanted to avoid doing this, because I know I'm compulsive: Buying something because of chance and opportunity, and even failing to do my homework before I buy. But I just did it again, it was too beautiful. :doh: I purchased a squamosa clam, and I just want to be absolutely sure it's a...

    well my clam its doing great on top of a rock he hasn't got attach to the rock and my hermit crabs are all over my clam and they keep throwing my clam out of the rock its not that high though its a very tiny small rock but I want my clam to use it like a base, it does open very well and my clam...

    I have about 0.4 ppm of Nitrate in my 30 gallon reef tank. I want to get that down to 0.25 ppm at most. Its frustrating knocking off that last little bit. Would the addition of a maxima clam get this down to my desired levels (I already have one maxima clam)? I know they filter nitrates, but...

    would i be able to keep a blue maxima clam under one ocean blue kessil a150w pendant? i just got my kessil today, and have it over my 36 bowfront, it looks really good, and i think it will be fine since all my corals are on one big main piece of LR right in the middle of the tank like 12" by...
