Sand in clam inlet siphon hole

Recommended Posts

I have a 5-6" maxima clam that is doing great, but I noticed a little bit ago that my midas blenny crop dusted near the clam with some sand and it kind of looked like a grain or two may have gone in the inlet siphon hole (the mouth) of the clam. Is there anything that I need to do to try to get that out of the clam or will the clam try to expel the grains or what? I have been unable to find ANY information about this online anywhere.

Ok thanks guys! My leopard wrasse just went to sleep in the sand right next to the clam too and made a sandstorm when it dove in. This must be annoying for the clam :mad:

Think about waves and tides in the ocean. Clams are used to it. No worries.

 

Ah yes that makes sense. I suppose in the wild they probably get dusted all the time with tides
