    So I just got home and I looked in my tank and my clam is not fully open. This is the first time I've ever seen him this closed, he has been in my tank for abt 2 weeks. Nothing has really changed in the past few days besides my water change on Friday

    When did you move the clam to the rocks? It may need time to adjust to the light change.

    It is not gaping so I would not be too worried. If the color hasn't changed either then it is just fine I think.
