chemi clean killed clam??

My LFS has a nice display tank with a three year old clam (not sure type but about 8" long) anyway I went in yesterday and it was all recoiled down inside the shell (appeared dead) I asked owner what happened he said they added chemi-clean to get rid of cyano and it killed the clam. Anyone ever heard of this - maybe a heads up for those of you with clams thinking of using chemi-clean.

I have used chemi clean a few times with no problems. I do have several powerheads, a power filter and an open top, though.

I have all those things, too. Maybe feather dusters and clams are just more sensitive to decreased oxygen levels.....
