Yeah I wasn't sure myself. I looked at the pic the lfs owner sent me of it and it looks much wider so not sure. Do clams close at night? Cuz right now he is.

Yes they do close at night. It'll probably open up some more as it adjusts to your tank.

This was a good read, I will have to try one or more in my new reef once it gets established. They don't sound as bad as I thought.

My maxima opened a bit larger today and I noticed the right side of it is slightly gaping. I read that this could occur when stressed or when it's getting acclimated still. Should I be worried or do you think it will eventually heal?

I wouldn't be too worried unless it continues.
