Deresa Clam with AI Prime

Hi All

I have just started a new 18" cube and eventually (many months) I would like to place a deresa clam in the center of my aquarium. From what I have read, I think it will be enough light, but I was wondering if anyone had any experience with a similar setup?

i would think the prime should be just fine. if you find that the light levels aren't high enough, you could always lower it on the mount.

i have my derasa under two AI Vegas in my 75. does quite well.

Thanks for the reply. I have thought about lowering the light and might if I find that it's not penetrating to the bottom.

Did you ever end up getting a clam ?
Just wondering how a prime HD will do with a clam
