One of the LFS bye has a crocea (I think) that's about 15" wide and 24" long. A lot of people overlook it and assume it's a rock with some coral on it.

My friend has a maxima that is 25 years old and is 24" long and about 18" tall. It lives in a 120 gallon tank and takes up the entire middle section. Next time I go to their house, I take a pic.

i don't think maxima clams get to be 2', but if it is one, it's some sort of record.
the clam image was taken from here:
Dive Bali - Scuba Diving Bali Indonesia with WaterWorx SSI Dive Center Bali
i googled "gigas clam" which are the largest.

Warm up the Clam Cam and get us a picture of this bad boy, hopefully with something of scale next to it.
I love big clams and this sounds like a deuzie.
