    " basically when the clam opens up his mantle rests on the clamstissue"
    Huh? Do you mean that the clam's mantle rests on the coral's tissue or that the coral's tissue rests on the clam's mantle? Either way, I would move the clam or the coral so that they're not touching. Not so much because of stinging but because one might be blocking light from the other.
