Maxima Clam and Green Maxima Clam



The Maxima Clam and Green Maxima Clam (Tridacna Maxima), also known as the small giant clam, is a species of bivalve mollusc found throughout the Indo-Pacific region. They are much sought after in the aquarium trade, as their often striking coloration mimics that of the true giant clam. However, the maximas maintain a manageable size, with the shells of large specimens typically not exceeding 7.9″ inches in length.

Bivalves have two valves on the mantle. These siphon water through the body to extract oxygen from the water using the gills and to feed on algae. The Maxima Clam and Green Maxima Clam is less than one-third the size of the true giant clam (Tridacna Gigas).
