    I got Deresa clam few weeks back, clam opened completely on day one itself and most of time it's fully open until late night. i never seen clam open that full,i am not sure if i consider clam being very happy or something wrong.

    Also my clam revolves around in same place, may be once or twice day. is that ok?

    What's your lighting? Looks like it's needing more than it's getting.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    I have had Derasa that tore the ligaments at the base of the shell, one way to tell if this has happened, when the clam closes if the shell does not line up correctly.

    Other wise it looks like a happy clam to me.
