There is no way in hell that clam killed that fish , it probably drifted into the clam after it died, or it was a staged shot. If my above comment was inapproriate, I apologize, as I know the clam couldn't have killed it, or caught it, I thought humor was what you were going for, kind of a laugh instead of cry deal. And well...the pic is kinda funny.

Oh, I don't think it's photoshopped, it just occurred to me that someone could find their fish dead, and grab it by the tail and stick it into the clam, causing it to close on it, while someone takes a pic.

with my "professional" eye, ( I use that term lightly) I can tell you that the photograph is infact real. The explination given by reefrunner is a good one. Probibly what happened.
