I have never had a Maxima, but I have had a Derasa. Very nice clam and they get BIG. I think the Maximas are the most demanding, as far as lighting and water quality.
I think you would need:
Good quality water in a well established tank (6-9 months minimum)
No pickers--they are irresistable to angels, eventually--and shrimps make me nervous
I would go with Metal Halide Lighting. I know that some will say T5 HO
, and Leds work fine, but I think MH
works best for the Maximas
I have not had one, but I have worked with Aquaculturists who do, and these are just my opinions.
