Finally found a nice hippopus at my local fish store. How much light do these guys need? don't want to fry him. use to keeping max and crocea clams. No where have i seen the mention of the light requirements on these guys. PC lighting enough for these guys?

I don't think you have to worry about frying him. I keep my hippopus 18" below a 400W mh bulb.
yeah i have a 65w pc plus two 20w NO over a 10 gallon temporarily. will be running a 150DE over a 30 cube.
