    I am toying with a clam for my new system, but i cant remember which species of clam is regarded "" beginner safe "" well beginner when it comes to keeping clams.

    I understand that they need a mature tank and ALK , calcium etc all kept stable . and i know some clams like being on the sand bed , where as others like being on rock work so they can put there foot down.
    i would like a Maxima but i know these are not seen as easy for those new to clams.
    but for the life of me i cant remember the other species lol.

    The easier clams would be the deresa and squamosa clams. I may have spelled them wrong too. :)

    Tridacna Derasa is one of the easier and more forgiving clams to keep

    Yeah, angels have a tendency to nip at clams.
