    I stand corrected -- I think mine is a Crocea and not a Maxima.

    Thanks Cris. I have hell telling them apart.

    Whatever it is, it seems happy sitting on its piece of rock on the substrate. Looks like it might be attaching as well. Parameters are normal: dKH 8.3, Calcium 430, Mg 1425

    Dosing Seachem 2-part at 55mL/day.

    Check out this big boy I found in the Cook Islands a couple weeks ago. The smaller ones were much more colorful.

    Here's the clam I got from MBC at ReefEd in my tank. Still not taking great photos with the filters Seth recommended but that's mostly a practice thing.

    What say you on the species here? I was thinking Crocea but it might be a maxima since it has a somewhat non-symmetrical shell. From what I've read, Croceas have a symmetrical shell.

    Do I count 4 clams in your picture??? Curious what you're doing/dosing to keep everyone happy.

    Whelp, I killed my original maxima. It was on a rock on the bottom of my 31" deep tank under dual 400W radiums. My other clam (maybe crocea) is much higher up and much happier.
