What the heck happened after I added this clam???
Okay guys true story.
I bought what I think is a Crocea clam and acclimated him and placed him in my tank. I placed him on the right side of the tank on top of some rocks and left to go somewhere for a few hours.
I come back and my two corals, torch and frogspawn are closed up with some sort of "slime" - looks like the slime from nasarrius snails. The torch coral seems a little better shaped but something definitely munched and damaged my frogspawn. The frogspawn was completely closed up and the tentacles were definitely ripped. Some pieces were hanging off and later fell off. Another piece of coral that was about the size of a golf ball was pulled out of the crushed coral which amazes me. And the clam was not where I placed it when I left.
What happened?? The simple answer is the clam went crazy and starting attacking everything...but its a clam! someone please help me understand what happened.... I'm going to sleep but I really hope my frogspawn will be okay but we'll see. Thank you everyone, help me figure this out.
My stock list is 2 clarkii's, watchman goby, pistol shrimp, 2 cleaner shrimp, and one small two headed frogspawn and one torch coral. Nothings changed for weeks except the clam I bought today, it is about 2-3 inches
