How many clams are there? From the pic the two in the top pic look like Croceas to me, but when they're small it's tough to tell. Either way, they are beautiful clams..

Just those two in the reef and the one in the 30, all three are Maxima's, I lost my other clams when the 75 sprung a leak and had to move everything.

Hmmm, I'd be willing to bet cash money the one on the right is a crocea. Would really like to see it's hinge to be sure.

Lights are out now I will try to get a picture tommorow. I have been curious about that one too as it dosent open as fully as the other Maxima's I have, Opens more like a crocea. this clam spun it self so it is facing backwards to late to move it as it is anchored now and on the same rock as the big max. Im a rookie when it comes to clams so all bets are off

Kevin I spoke with Barry from Clams Direct and he said if this clam is not a true Maxima it probably is a Hybrid. But definetly not a crocea. Either way I think I will keep it looks great. He just got in some Blue rimmed deresa. Mine will be in Friday.

Cool, to be honest, I didn't know they did that, but it seems perfectly reasonable

Well, this is what really matters and I agree, it looks great!!
