So I set up a sick tank for him with the tank water so not to shock him too much and placed him on his rock last night. I figured this way the cleaner beast wouldnt pick him to death. This morning he was totally open and smelling pretty bad so I'm assuming the poor fellow died. I'm not sure what happened to him but i dont think i'll be taking anymore clams from anyone. To stressfull!!!
Thanks all for the help, not sure if i could have done anything to help him because he went so fast. Poor little guy.
