Help Clam Going Down

Hi MR,

I've had my deresa clam for about 2 years and it was doing so well and grew significantly. In the past month or so, I noticed it wasn't opening up and showing signs of bleaching. I've changed the bulbs on my ATI fixture in January but they have never been in full blast (usually ramps up to around 70% max).

Is this a virus issue? Should I do a FW bath?

Also, are you positive that the Copperband is not picking on the clam?
Clams are one of the cautions with CBB.

Hmm...unless he's a ninja about it. I've never seen him bother with it at all. As I'm reading, it's looking more and more like a case of PMS (pinched mantle syndrome).

Here's a look at the clam as of last night. Think it's done. I did a quick FW bath but I think it's too late.

Agree, I would take it out now before the cleanup crew makes a mess out of it.
