Nice rock work, looks great! One comment/question though-Is that a Crocea or Maxima clam? Either way you should think about moving it up into the rock work. They are rock dwelling, high light clams and in most instances require MH lighting to keep their coloring and thrive in an aquarium. Placing it on small piece of LR or a clam half-shell is good idea so you can easily move it if needed. They permanently attach themselves to whatever they are on once fully acclimated and happy. Good luck
Its a MAXIMA Clam, ive moved it to the flat rock on the right side! Thanks for the suggestion... My friend told me that the intake(mouth) shoould be zipped up if its happy and water is good, it was open in the sandy spot, (dont think it liked it there) now its more closed at the new flat rock spot! Good looking out!

That's why we're here I definitely think it will be happier where it is now, assumuing you have enough light.

True, but Maximas and Croceas tend to "gape" a bit more than other clams. Don't worry yourself to much about that. If it stops extending it's mantle (pinching) or starts losing color, then it's time to worry. Your tank looks good, nice aqua-scaping. Happy reefing...

What is your substrate? It looks SO nice! When we arranged our LR it took the sand days to settle down. Yours looks beautiful!

I love the aquascaping. Lots of caves and very natural looking. I'm still in the planning stages for my tank and yours is a great example of what I hope mine will look like when done. You are going to have very happy fishes!
