Well the clam is doing well today. When I dropped something infront of the tank today he close up and is acting normal. Its been about 40 hours since he moved. Is this normal before they die?

it may be one of those wait and see things. We have had our maxima clam for over a year and no problems with him. With the exception of him moving every once in a while.

And i would really stop trying to keep clams if you are having trouble with them. They are delicate species.

That is really good news. That is not the norm at all. Along the feet the clams have these little sticky tendon like deals that the hook into the rock work. I'm wondering if it left a ball of them behind. It is ok to cut them with a razor balde so long as you do not cut the foot itself.
