I like to put them on the bottom, but how to do that will depend on what kind of clam it is. How much and what type of light you have on what size tank.

I am assuming the 150s are HQIs. Personally I would put it higher up in the tank, if you try it on the bottom put it directly under one of the halides. As for the species, it is impossible to tell by color, need to get a look at it's shell and the underside.

Sounds like either a Derasa or A Squamosa.. Most likely a Derasa
