    when my aquarium lights is off i noticed the clam doing something weird, it was spitting out some sort of cloudy substance. and it was make my water cloudy. do any of you know what its doing? the clam is perfectly healthy.

    the size of my clam is 11' across and when fully open the mantle touches the front and back glass of my 55gal tank

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Sounds like it could be spawning.

    How often does this happen?

    A larger clam spawning can cause issues with water quality.
