Hey,
I just got a clam, yesterday and it opened maybe 1 minute after i put it in the tank... so i know it likes it, and is semi-healthy.. but i did not look at it very carefully yesterday but just now i was looking at it and it appears to be turning gold?!?! sound right? its a crocea clam, and is starting to turn in the middle of its lip?.. what do i do and what is happening? my tank is doing fine, have tons of other coral and a few fish and they are doing great.. i have HO T5's, and its only 1 day old?... is it dying?

i don't think its dying but i would move it to the bottom of the tank for a few days and see what happens . clams don't like to put high into light on the first day in the new tank it needs time to adjust to your lights .good luck and thats a nice looking clam & tank

when i moved my clam it took about 10 min first i put my hand over him to make him close then i just moved him side to side just be nice to him not to hard . some use r/o water to move them. i just don't like to use r/o on any coral to make them let go.
