    Turn it upright. Probably was trying to move and fell off. I leave my clam in sand bed. Also much easier to move since not attached to anything.
    Would assume it wi be fine once turned upright

    If dead have to get out. Mine made a huge mess when it died. Do you have a QT tank or something you can put it in?
    I went to Petco and bought a little crab plastic bin.

    If cuc is eating dead flesh off the clam then remove it asap. No saving it in that state.

    Sorry to hear. Loosing any livestock really sucks
