Clam killing blenny

So I've had a deresa and maxima clam and my blenny nipped them both to death. Well the deresa was kinda poor condition to start but the maxima wasnt. Anyone else had a blenny go awol on clams

Yeah it was a little bit ago but I noticed my maxima looked amazing the first couple days. Then I noticed it wouldn't open its mantle all the way. Then it started gaping. Then I found the culprit as my blenny was tearing chunks out of it's mantle. It was dead the next day. I was so mad lol. The blenny is lucky I couldn't catch him

Right! I swear the thing is a demon. He terrorizes my royal gramma and murders clams! I do love him though, so much personality
