Kill the hydroids fast before they spread. Idk about the other can you get a picture of it all the way open showing the whole disc of the polyp or whatever it is.

The top looks like a trumpet or candy cane coral polyp.  If so and your conditions are good it should thrive.

clam, likely a Chama spp. They aren't all ornate, google images will show the nicer looking ones first. Yours is more like a smooth edged jewelbox, Chama spinuosa. They are common in the Florida Keys.
