Hows my clam look?

Hey everyone, after 6 months of having my tank set up and about a month of having everything switched to a 75g, I decided to purchase a clam. I have a crocea clam its about 3 or 3.5 inches and my question to you all is. Judging by the photos do you think my clam is healthy and doing fine? It's day two for him in the tank and his mantle is well extended and he is a beautiful purple and blue.

Please let me know what u think.
Thanks

Seems to be ok. Do you feed him phyto at all? If not, you may want to as it will help his growth. I believe this is there primary source of nutrition until the breach the 4 inch mark.

Correct after 4 inches they feed of light. It looks good to me though.

Thanks, another question, do u think those lighter colored spots may be an early sign of bleaching? Or is it to early to tell?I'm new to clams and have read some pretty harsh things online. I've attached pictures from this morning. Day3 in the tank. Lighting is 4 t5s , two 12k and two actinic/ 216watts.
