Muscle of some sort?

Take a look at this pic. The view is from the open end of the shell. It only opens about 1/4"-3/8" and closes when ever i open the hood. It is about 2" long X 1.5" wide X 1.5" tall.

Looks like a filter feeding clam. These are not like the tridacnids as they contain no zooxanthellae and require phytoplankton for all their nutritional needs.

I believe they are referred to as Turkey Wing Clams. Loke Reefrunner said, they need Phytoplankton and LOTS of it.

What is typically considered the best and is also the most common (around here anyway) is DT's Live phytoplankton.

Your tank also gets a good hit of phyto when you wipe the micro algae aff the glass (or acrylic).
