Mitch, you can keep anything you want under t-5 lights (4x or more bulbs) as long as you watch your placement. Light hungry animals closer to the top in deep tanks (24").

yes, i have many clams under t-5s. naturally, you need enough light regardless of what type of lighting you have, but yes, i keep clams, acropora, and anemones under t-5 lighting.
crocea clams are the most light demanding of clams FYI.

Yes but they don't get huge which means, even though they need the most light, you don't have to worry about their size. Although I guess with the slow growth rate of clams, you don't have to worry anyway.
