Crocea Clam keeps Tipping to its side

The Crocea Clam I have has been in my tank for about 1.5 years and about 4-5 inches all around. I have about 3 inches of sand in my 30g tank. How do you guys manage to keep the clam upside and instead of it tipping to its side. Thanks

Mine does the same thing. Clams can and will move. Do you have too much water flow in that direction?
Mine is about the same age and size. I do right it on occasion, but it just tips to the side again.

Mine is on top of some LR and has these cords that hold it upright.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
