Giant/Maxima Clam Question?

My tank is 5 weeks old and I was looking forward of getting a Giant/Maxima clam. Is it possible to get a clam at this time?

I would wait very sensitive animal. Mine is almost a year old and I won't risk it.

I've been reading a lot and I've seen people have Dersas in their month and half or 2 month tank.

I would wait on anything like that for at least a few more months. Just let your tank settle in a bit. Don't worry...stores won't run out of them.

The only problem is that a newer tank that young has stability problems. Your parameters are bouncing around. I personally think a year would be better.
