I don't know jack about clams, but I can assure you that the people on this forum will tell you that you shouldn't be keeping clams with that much lighting. I say this from experience, cuz I've asked similar questions.

I figured that...but there was a lfs that had a huge maxima or something in a 700 gal tank with only 2 watts to the gallon VHO's. People always said that it wouldn't live but it did for years and was the biggest one I have ever seen.

Yeah, I've seen many similar things. I didn't say I agreed with what they would tell you, I just said that they'd tell you that, hehe.

I've done a few inadvisable things with my tank that have failed to come back and bite me in the butt for the last six months. Sometimes things work out better than you'd expect.

It was probably a gigas or a hipopus, they do not require nearly as much light as maximas and croceas. For your lights I think you could do a squamosa and maybe a derasa. Certainly a hipopus or a gigas, although the gigas will get to large for your tank. I wouldn't do a maxima or a crocea, unless it is placed high in the tank, and personally if I can't put the clam low enough to view it from above....I'll pass.
