Anyone got some advice on the best feeds for clams? I bought 2, one died and the other is still OK. Currently using standard mysis, marine mix, etc

Tridacna clams? they don't need fed, and really they don't filter feed much at all (save T. gigas and those don't come up in the hobby very often).

plenty of good threads on this around, but the tldr; is that they don't need it, and in most cases probably can't even use it.

Thanks. It is a T. maxima, and very pretty too!

that's excellent. i haven't gotten a maxima yet, just a crocea and derasa here, but next tank i plan on making room for one.

don't forget to post some pictures of it, and enjoy!

Yep, no direct feeding necessary.

Yup - lots of high quality light. Most Maxima deaths are from too little light even though the owner thinks that they have enough.
