This is a bad sign isn't it??

When I woke up this morning, my giant sand sifting snail was partially IN the clam. Now I don't know if the snail was eating something that was decaying but I got him outta there n this is what my clam looks like 9 hrs later :/ advice?

Oh and my palm tree coral is completely dead now.. joy.

That's what I feared

Next question. Is there a way to remove the clam and just keep the shell??

Mine didn't make it a couple months ago. Eventually the cuc will eat everything. All that was left was the shell on my side but I tossed it

I would remove it. Then just clean out the shell best you can. Place some hermits in a bucket or qt tank and let them finish it up. That sucks!!
