This picture is old. The clam is now only a couple inches from the front and back glass. Tridacna gigas.

Now, that is one of the nicest gigas I've ever seen 8O I love that outline pattern :P

Has it ever ruined a good set a bulbs?

No. It will throw a gallon or so on the floor every once in a while for no reason. Drives me nuts since it's carpet.

Can see how it relates to the rest of the tank here. It's a 180.

Holy cow JP, that is huge. I bet it weighs a ton. Karl, how did you lose that gorgeous clam?

Here's my 7" maxima which I don't have anymore.

Now I want a clam. I don't have halides though. :cry:

They are all beautiful!

Although MH is recommended, there's quite a few people that are keeping clams under fluorescents. Especially, T. derasa.

I'm going to go through all my clam pics when I have some time (thousands) and post up some of my favorites that have passed through my hands. Should make for a nice post.

Here's the b/w maxima I was able to find...

...after frantically searching for one like this one on pg. 216 of Natural Reef Aquariums.

Sadly, I have none of these anymore. This pic is from last year, and like 7 residences ago. :(

I was going to go through my pics and post some stand outs. Holy crap what an undertaking. All I looked through was maxima ones and there are hundreds of those. Between all the tridacnas, I must have several thousand pictures easily.

So I just quickly picked a couple and instead of searching for the originals, I am putting up the resized and cropped ones. Sue me.

Like I said, just a handful.

By far the nicest maximas I have ever gotten are always from ORA. Without doubt.

All mine were ORA, as well. Killer clams from there...definitely the best.

From what I hear the farm ORA get their clams from is down for a little bit for a clean sweep or something. Once they get back up and ora starts offering the ultra clams I will start getting them again and if I see a green one I'll let you know.
