What kind of Benny? I have a lawn mower that only 'bothers' my clams when algae grows on the shell. This is far from killing the clam. Though my smaller maxima that isn't doing well has much more algae growth on the shell than the healthy ones.
How are the parameters? Any signs of pinched mantle or gaping prior?

It's a flametail blenny, enchelyurus flavipes. My params are fine: ammonia/nitrite 0, nitrate ~0, phosphate .07, calcium 420, alkalinity 8.5, mag 1450. There was no gaping or pinched mantle at first but after I started to notice chunks of the clams mantle missing it started gaping. Then I watched the blenny rip at the mantle an the clam wouldn't open fully

Yeah that self isn't healthy. Sounds like you are stuck with the fish or clams.
