PIcked up a nice 2 inch blue maxima this weekend. It was $50 but i used a gift card I got for writing a review about them on here so thank you nano reef. Anyways so picked the clam got it home acclimation was a snitch 1/2 hour in bag for temp then every 15 mins of taking out bag water replacing with tank water (all while floating in the tank. Till my 1 hour acclimation was done. I have him on the sand right now I know he needs to be higher up and on rock i just need to make some room. and here are picture i know you have been waiting for

Yes, thats good that it closed up. Don't need to feed them, just feed them light :)

Um well 45 minutes out of sacramento sorry or the mistake. Ever heard of Vacaville? Its a little place called Blue Moon Corals. The have 3 clams going up for sale saturday. They were in quarentine for the last week. 2 Crocea (but that would be 1 since im buying one) and 1 dersa they also have 2 bigger clams in a display tank idk theyre species though.

I'd avoid any clams <2". Especially Crocea. They can be.... finicky.

 

The maxima looks awfully pretty though :) Clearer pics would be great! :)

The prices are within range.. My LFS sells 2-3" Blue Maxima's for $39.99 and 3" Crocea for $28.99.

 

Would love to see some less blurry pics though :)
