New Maxima Clam behavior

Before I post anything I was wondering if my clam looks alright, I got him 2 days ago. He has good reflexes, and he opens a lot, but not all the way I think. He is very brightly colored. Do you think he has the pinched mantle disease or something? Thank You!
BTW my GBTA is doing a lot better now.

Parameters:
pH: 8.2
Salinity: 1.026
Temp: 79
Nitrates: 2.5
Phosphates: 0.03
Calcium: 420
Mag: 1330
Alkalinity: 9

Sorry on the two above photos, some abnormal things are from ripples in the water.
It is Teal from above and Blue from the side.

There appears to be nothing wrong with that clam.

With that said, you have a pretty young tank and are putting some sensitive livestock in there. A nano tank isn't very forgiving when something happens. That and small clams have a poor survival rate in our aquariums compared to those purchased at larger sizes. I'd make sure I am patient and diligent with my tank to keep things pristine as the system matures.

My tank is about a year old now and has been very stable, those other pictures are not mine, but thank you for the help, he has opened a lot more in the past day.

I agree. He looks fine. It will take awhile for him to spread out.
