    Should be plenty. I've got 2 clams doing great for about 15 months (wide open, loads of tissue, laying down new shell) in my 72g bowfront with crappy Dual Satellite PC's.

    Clams are nother creature that does better in a more mature tank. You should have enough light but I would wait a few months after you get the skimmer.
