    They show quick decline if the removal bothers them. So if it is not gaping and opens up nicely it should be OK.

    The clam looked good in the video. The decline is rapid. The mantle stops coming out and the clam gapes.

    I've got a clam just like yours. Up on my rock about 11" from the lights, t5ho. How deep is your tank? Mines 21" that's why she's not on the sand bed. Yours will color up too :)
