Any idea how id happened? I know maximas will drop their "foot" fibers when they move, dont know much about croceas though, unfortunately. Any chance it just ejected its byssal tissue? is there any foot tissue left?

It's not like the little stringy foot thing,it's the actual foot,it's looks like a quarter inch thick and about half an inch long and has alot of tear signs.
Don't really know what happened,the clam has been in that spot for the past year and was very healthy.

It should be fine where it is. Long as it doesnt get infected. Do not ty to glue or wedge it into the rock work to get it higher.. sand is the safest place for it now. I don't think they regrow their feet though..

All previous tanks retired.... New project planning in progress....

What makes you so sure that that's the foot? I've never seen a brown clam foot before.

he said it was a dried up foot. Things discolor as they dry out..(beef jerkey is not red when dried even if not soaked in brine first it turne a maroonish brown color) si u attributed the color to that.. just my interpretation though.

As above,it's dried up.
It was white in color when it was in the water and about twice the size.
And man...I didn't know the clams foot was the strong,it was just hanging there from the rock and I decided to take it off and honestly you need to put some work in to get it off the rock...it's like a strong rubberband lol.
