New clam is dead for some unknown reason

My string of horrible luck continues. Got a 2.5" crocea on saturday. It's mantle was fully extended at the store and it reacted well when I did the hand test. It's foot wasn't damaged and I checked it well for pyramid snails. I got it home acclimated it and it fully opened within minutes. I placed in on the bottom of my tank next to my squamossa figuring that since that clam was happy with the flow rate this clam would be happy as well and I could move it up the tank as it acclimates to my light. A couple times on sunday it was on it's side so I flpped it back over and decided to move it this morning figuring maybe it wasn't happy. I get home today at lunch and it's dead. No idea what went wrong which is pretty much the story of all my tanks lately.....

Amonia 0
nitrite 0
nitrate <5
SG 1.025
Temp 79
alk 440

Sorry to hear. It's possible that the clam was already dying before you purchased it.

I guess the clam could have been dieing, but it appeared very healty...

I always drip 1gal of RO/DI water w/ 2tsp of kalk every night, I use a pH monitor to make sure it's not dripping too fast.
