I think it would come down the depth of your tank. Although I am also asking the same type of question, I have heard many success stories. I figured I would just give it a try and see what happens.

I had one for a year in a 55 with only t5 lights, bristle worms got to mine after i bought a frogspawn of CL though, and where you are trying may have too much water flow for him, I am not real familiar with clams though.

I placed them in a cove. The rock work slows the water movement pretty well. Although there still is some. I am sorry to hear you lost yours. 1 up for the anti side of the "are bristleworms beneficial" debate.

New plan, moved the Maxima up the rock work. The slate is glued to the rock (6th tube of glue, lol) and still hoping he will attach. He doesn't seem to be able to escape the box however. Hopefully. Squamosa will live in the sandy cove!!

He is realy trying to escape. I did not realize these guys move around so much if they are not attached!

It isn't if they aren't attached, it it's if they don't like where they are. I had mine attached to a rock in the sandbed but moved him up so he got more light and to make room for more acans. About a week our 2 into being up top he moved himself back down into the sand. I put his rock back where it was and put him on it. He has opened back up, just not like he used to. Hope he didn't hurt himself or get burned by the light. If it find a happy spot, don't move it! A higher flow spot in the sandbed should work well for your clam. Gl.

Thanks for the advice. Haha, I put him in the sand and he was trying to move all over. But was only opened a little bit. Moved him up the rock, he is still moving, but now he is fully open. I can tell he likes it better. He is under 96watts of light in the 30g, just ordered my reefbrite XHO which is another 28watts and high par. Should be here by Monday. Also going to be using a 9watt high par finnex LED. Guess we will see.
