New member
i had a nice purple maxima in my tank for a few months, only about 2" well the last week or so it had stopped opening up.. i could not figure what was wrong. finally it became non responsive to light or touch and had severely receeded it foot had also become loose from the rock it was attached to.. i was checking on it today and touched it with my finger,,, well the calm came away from the foot and what looked like all of its insides came out with it... obviously dead! well i noticed on the bottom of the clam and where the foot was attached.. there were 30 to 40 small white snails...conical in shape and only 1-2 mm long...what kind of snail would attack a clam like that.. and will they harm other stuff in my tank?
