Sps growing on the side of a Maxima clam

Recommended Posts

Got an Maxima clam on boxing day and there seems to be some sort of sps growing on the side of it. I'm wondering if it will harm the clam down the road or not.

So it’s three things growing on it? I just replied to your other thread. If it is a coral, it won’t harm the clam. In nature they grow almost completely surrounded by corals. The only thing that could cause a problem is eventual shading of the clam. However, fragging easily takes care of that.
