Plate coral and derasa clam

Cant seem to keep these two separate?
Anyone know if this could lead to any sort of warfare??

I don't know if a fungia can sting or not. If the clam remains open when it touches the fungia, then I would assume not. The clam can't do anything to defend itself but close up.

I have 3 plate coral in my tank. One of which won't stay away from my clam while another won't stay away from my open brain coral, even though I have kept moving the clam and brain. As it stands, they haven't hurt each other in the slightest even with tentacles out.
