    Maybe a hardware store with a piece of slate.

    Any type of craft store. Maybe you can find a glass shell keep it clean let it turn purple.

    Walmart Lowes homedepot Micheals target small town glass maker kinda store anywhere they cell bathroom Tom stuff maybe you can find a glass one there. Maybe even to that restaurant I'm sure they toss them and will Cater to an odd fish tank request to help a patron of there fine oyster serving restaurant lol

    With all that being said don't worry these clams live on rocks there whole life basically if you put on a rock it will only jump if not enough light that's what it wants so put it in middle and let it hang out.

    I may break off a piece of my rock in my tank, when i acclimate him to my light/tank do i need to put him in the sandbed with a rock underneath so he can attach or can i just put him in the sandbed and put a rock under him later?

    Also can i touch his shell? to move him and whatnot or is that a no no

    Start with the rock beneath it. You do not want it to attach to the tank bottom.

    Wait till it attached to rock to try to move it. Move the rock not it.

    I have 2 maximas and 2 croceas in the sand. One of my crocea doesn't have a foot, and hasn't for months now (it was free). I do however have some rock in the sand, but both my maximas moved off of it.
