    What is the coral to the left? I was told not to put it to close to the light, that infact it doesnt like alot of light.

    the coral on the left is a pink montipora digitata, they are demanding of light I would put it up highin the tank with moderate to heavy flow.

    beautiful clam too. I would get him on a rock so he can attach and be happy!!

    I was recommended to put him in the sand by a clam "fanatic" he has around 4 or 5 in total between 3 tanks. Are you sure about the coral? Cause I heard the opposite saying it doesnt like light?! I agree I think its really weird, but I'll throw it up on top then.

    most all sps corals are very light demanding!!! what kind of light do you have in the tank???? I have mine under 10k and 14K MH lighting high in the tank and they LOVE it.

    and as for the clam you want a firm surface underneath him so he can attach his byssal and stay put and upriite.

    The coral could definitely be a digi... a really nice one if the colors weren't "enhanced". However, with the color, I would believe it to be a blunt type of bird's nest(stylophora, I believe). Can you get a closer pic of the polyps??? As for the clam, looks like you have intense lighting so either placement will do... whatever you do, IMO, set him on a rock that he won't be able to rock himself out of. If that coral is claimed to be a low light demander, I would also veer to believe it to be a montipora digi as Greg suggests... but the color suggests otherwise.

    There's nowhere else I'ld rather be... unless, of course, you're buying

    I'd lean toward digit too, but then again, I'm a moron. All the birdsnests that I've seen (used to have one too, but it passed on to the great reef) have very separated "branches" not the clusters/clumps of branches like that one.

    Then again, you could always revert to the moron thing again.

    Let's throw another possibility to the mix until we can see some close up pics, though lacking the usual uniform growth patterns, the blunt ends and coloring suggests a pocilipora (aka cats paw) to me.
