I recently submitted a post where some of my corals were dying and my crocea clam died. It went from looking AWESOME to dead in a day.
I do remember awakening one morning to whar I thought were baby snails all over the glass. I have two kinds of these. Some are oblong shaped and I thought they were baby nassarius snails, but they never really grew much. I also have some bigger rounder ones. ( no idea what these are)
I never consided the pest snails to be the clam killing culprit because it happened so fast, AND I have a 6 line wrasse for this purpose only. I saved the clam shell and noticed a few of the oblong type shells along the attachment area.
Does this sound like the parasite? If so, how do I get rid of them so I can order another clam? I will make no mistakes this time and order clams from clamsdirect.com
