I just acclimated my clam and putting him in the tank, he squirted me hard, I knew they squirted but didnt know it was that much and hard, My tank is 12" high, Should I buy a lid? Ill try to point him the correct way length wise

Okay when he opens up , does the foot have to be on a rock, or is the sand okay?

It may just be trying to settle in......mine opened right away and after it adjusted itself on the rock it hasn't moved since.

 

 If it hates that spot it will try to "jump" off or move around trying to get comfortable.  

 

Was the foot attached to anything when you bought it?
