I’ve had my 75 gallon up are running for about a year now, and it done pretty well. I had a clam in there way too early and because of my stupidity it died. Now I have the tank filled with LPS and some soft corals. I also have some easier to keep SPS corals. I just want some opinion on what type of clam to get and the care behind one. I’ve been looking at a maxima for a while now because of it beautiful color, but I’m unsure how to approach this.

I would start with an easier to keep clam like a Squamosa Derasa since they seem to be pretty adaptable. What type of lights do you have?

I ended up getting a Derasa Clam from my LFS, it is around 3 inches. Someone told me that when they are this small you should feed them so my question is what do I feed them?
