Care Instructions:

  • Tank Size: A minimum tank size of 30 gallons is recommended to accommodate the clam and provide ample space for growth.

  • Lighting: Maxima Clams require intense lighting to thrive. High-output LED lights, T5 fluorescent lights, or metal halide lights are ideal. Ensure the lighting setup mimics their natural habitat for optimal health and coloration.

  • Water Flow: Moderate water flow is essential to keep the clam's mantle clean and to provide nutrients. Avoid direct, strong currents that could cause stress.

  • Water Parameters:

    • Temperature: 74-82°F (23-28°C)
    • Salinity: 1.023-1.025 specific gravity
    • pH: 8.1-8.4
    • Calcium: 400-450 ppm
    • Alkalinity: 8-12 dKH
    • Magnesium: 1250-1350 ppm
  • Placement: Position the clam on a stable surface with its foot securely attached to a rock or the substrate. Maxima Clams prefer being placed on rock structures rather than directly on sand.

  • Feeding: While Maxima Clams primarily rely on photosynthesis, supplemental feedings of phytoplankton or specialized clam food can promote growth and health, especially in young or smaller clams.

Difficulty: Moderate, suitable for aquarists with some experience in maintaining reef aquariums.

Maximum Size: These clams can grow up to 12 inches (30 cm) in their natural environment, but their growth rate will be slower in an aquarium setting.
