    hi gang i purchased a crocea clam yesterday as an active addition to my tank, when it was in the bag for the trip home you could see a stem with threads and im assuming this is the byasall, now that has come off and was floating in the tank, so my question is was that the foot as well and what is my clams fate?

    It will probably be OK. Place the clam on a smooth, level, flat rock and let it be. It should attach itself over night.
