I have a 25g nano w/ 130w pc, and I put my 4" derasa and 4" squamosa at the bottom of my tank, and they seems very happy and the colour seems even brighter then when I first got them from liveaquaria about 1 month ago. and I feed them everyday w/ plankton.

happy clam keeping.

crocea's and maxima's are the highest light demanding clams that you can buy, i wouldn't recommend anything less than a 150 watt MH system for them.


with a squammy or derasa you could get away with PC's, but i'd say that having clams in a nano is already pushing the boundry of your clams being happy and barely surviving...

I think a crocea is about the only nano appropriate clmm available due to their 6-7" max size. However, as Vic said, the require MH lighting. Derasa's and Squamosa's both get too large for nanos.
