Hey Everybody! I got a T. Maxima today(I couldn't resist) I'm not sure where to put him! I have 2 250 watt halides in a 24" deep tank. I think he looks pretty on the sand, his colors are pretty. Should he be on the rock not the sand? Could he inhale sand into his byssal gland? Also how much water flow! Experience appreciated! Thanks

If you put it on the sand put a flat piece of LR underneath for it to attach to or put it on a ledge on a piece of your LR and it will attach there as well. The choice is yours!

I have my deresa clam about 7" below the water level underneath a 250ww MH 10,000k bulb and loves it there! It has firmly attached itself to a small ledge!

My two maxima's are on the DSB and they came already attached to a small rock so no problem there!:)

Here is my deresa clam attached to the small ledge:
