Looking like a goner at this point.
I see no signs of flatworms or pyramids.
So my hawfish keeps picking at the clam now. Do you think its doing that because it's dead/dying or do you think he could be to blame? Ive never heard of a falco going after a clam.
Probably smells it.
I'd pull it at this point.
so sorry for your loss. Beautiful clams add so much to the color and pop of a tank. That is weird that it happened so quickly
Yeah I pulled it out of the tank now.
Bummer. I got that clam when it was so little and enjoyed watching it grow and was one of my favorites.
Nothing on the shell seems be to blame.
Nothing you can see in the byssal area?
Is it the only clam and if not have you introduced any newer clams of late?
Nothing at all on it. Shell was clean.
No other clams in the tank.
Going out on a limb here...how about temp spikes?
I know that when I used to keep a lot of clams, if the tank hit about 82*F, they got pretty unhappy.
They don't appreciate pH fluctuations much either, but your clam looks like it kinda just up and went south quickly.
