Crocea and maxima clams are rock dwellers to you might want to find a level place on the top of your rocks. Tank looks great, too.

Great looking clam, congrats!
did you ever get a sump??
and nope no sump just hob equipment
Crocea and Maximas are generally found on rocks. They are rock boring clams and will secrete an acid that dissolves the rock and they will make the rock their home. People do keep them in the sand too, but I would place something below it for it to grab a hold of, like a flat rock or shell. If not, it could attach to your glass and be a big pain to get off.
hmmmm ok thanks for the info. i've got some thinking to do, not sure if my rocks would be able to hold the weight of the clam or if i can find a good spot for it. Maybe ill leave it on the sandbed for a lil while see how it does and if it doesnt attach itself ill got o the lfs and maybe get a smallish rock that i can place under it, i kind of like where its at. And hopefully it wont stick to the glass sounds like that would be a major PITA
