    Looks like the big one is a derasa judging by the smoothness of the clam shell and the two smaller ones are maxima du to the color patern and fluits.
    Of all the things I have lost, I miss my mind the most.

    Gonna need a better picture if you want more than an educated guess. I need a pic of the incurrent siphon and a good pic showing the shape of one valves (shell). The croceas shell is asymmetrical whereas the maxima is symetrical. You could also look for scutes which are little ridges you can see on the outer shell. If they are there it's looking like a maxima.

    That clam was a formerly kept by one of our members that ourgrew his tank... an id was posted with the thread along with that picture... of course it's one I can't find at the moment... but it's one nobody could forget since the tank holding it is rather large (i forget how big, 230g maybe??) But any search pattern I can think up involving clams is coming back with a LOT of results. Still digging though.

    That is indeed my friends Clam in her 240G Reef. It was my teenager that posted that pic. She asked my what type of clam it is and we can not be sure. Even when I held it in my hands and had several experienced reefers around nobody was sure. Some speculate it's a hybrid.

    Anyway, I said she could post it and see if anyone could ID it for sure. It's the huge one in the pic.
