A little Concerned about my clams…Please help.


New member
My clams have this stringy cob web thing coming from the bottom of the shell.
It looks like it is some type of gel with some small white dots in it. Seems to be surrounding the base.
It may be coming from around the foot area.

They both show signs of growth and are acting very normal..
Any ideas as to what this could be ?

Had one clam for 7 months. It is about 6ââ"šÂ¬Ã‚ now and shows excellent signs of growth.
Had the second one for about a month.

All water perimeters are good. They are under 440 W VHO 110 W PC and 250 W MH
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I will see if I can get a picture.

HI Bayliner,

Are you familiar with the byssal thread? If not, try searching for "byssal thread" on here and google. Could you post a picture by any chance?
