Re: F**** I MAY HAVE KILLED MY CLAM! THe clam weakened when I tried to detach the foot strands from rock with my hands. They woudn't budge, they are like superglue, but on my last tug, I felt something give inside the clam. That was the mortal blow. I'm 100% convinced. Like I said, I went to work, did some research on moving clams, found out you can cut the strands, came home to a half dead clam and cut him and moved him. Yes I have halide lighting, the clam was doing very well except when I started to try and remove him from the rock. The rock was too narrow and he would tip from time to time in the last week or so. Next one is going straight to the sand. I am going to try something Barry suggested a long time ago and put a little rock or ironically maybe the half shell from this clam a 1/4 inch under the sand to give the new guy something big to attach too.
