CLAM Missing tissue

Recommended Posts

Hey I recently got a little maxima clam (1.5-2”) and at the LFS I didn’t notice that it was missing small chunks of its mantle. 

 

I checked it it for snails and it’s very responsive to light/shadows. (Like if a fish swims by it, it will close).

 

Will this grow back? Is there anything I should be doing ?

Looks like it was housed with an angel or similar nipping fish...

I’ve had my clam nibbled on by a emerald crab, took a pretty sizable chuck out of the clams mantle. Needless to say the crab went by by and the clam made a full recovery. Just keep the water very stable and the clam will grow it back. Might want to feed the clam some food to help it recover, clam specific food of course.

I really like sponge power for clams.
