    what questions? the hole in the clam question? that was answered already. if its the droopy mantle, thats pretty self explanatory. the mantle should be up and almost frilly looking.

    This is a crocea's intake opening but it's pretty much identical to a maxima. Is this the tear you're speaking of?
