Maxima Clam?

I was wondering if I could get a maxima clam. I have a 150g tank with and 8 bulb T5 fixture. I was wondering if my fish would eat him?

Trigger might.

You may have enough light if you put it on top.

T5s. 8 bulb fixture. I forget the name but it was $540 at my LFS. Would it close up if my trigger got close?

that is up to the fish itself but it would probably attack the clam even if it closed and it would eventually get weakened and get picked off.

triggers are known to be an aggressive fish and are not usually reef safe so i would keep an eye on it. bat fish are also not reef safe so keep an eye on them with your corals

And one more thing, amke sure the light has individual reflectors. If not, you will not get enough par value to keep the clam alive, you will have to feed it alot and all the time. But other than that, they are not to awful hard to keep alive.
