I would love for mine to grow and continue to be happy in my tank...one of my anemones went walkabout this morning, and settled near/or my clan, and he retracted...will he get stung/injured, or is his shell ample protection?

Babies that outweigh you and keep getting bigger! :)

My BTA walked over my clam, and the next day the clam was completely gone from his shell. Shell was so clean, it looked like it had never been occupied.

(sorry for the awful color and algae, I hadn't cleaned the glass in over a week and had to use CFLs for light for a few days)

Your clam "should" be just fine. It is perplexing why some clams are sensitive to anemone stings, and others dont even notice them. Yesterday i saw a teardrop maxima being smothered by a fairy large anemone, and the clam was open in all its glory like it didnt even notice. Not retracted in the least. Move your clam over a little so it stays happy - as a clam??!!
