    Not sure on the patches, no change is a good sign. Clam looks good to me. How long have you had it?

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    I have had a Crocea with the same markings I just considered part of the coloration pattern. Your clams looks healthy to me. If you google images of Crocea clams I am sure you will find others with similar markings, like this one.
