Clam query !? Spitting clouds

Blacksheep1

Hi , can anyone that keeps ( or has kept ) clams answer please? I’ve just done a fairly large water change , which stirred up the water column , after filling and plugging everything up I like to have a nosy to check everyone’s doings ok. I’ve just seen my clam spit out a little cloud of mulm/ detritus? Is this normal ? I’ve never actually fed the little fella , he chose his spot when he was introduced and buried himself in and hasn’t moved much since really. His shell is open as normal and I can see inside a little , he seems to be filter feeding , it was the cloud of stuff he spat out is throwing me !

Any ideas are greatly appreciated . Thanks in advance

I hope someone gets back to you. I have been dying to have a pet clam.

Thankyou me too ! Everything I’ve read says they are only for experienced aquarists but honestly I sometimes forget he’s there . He just chose his spot and stayed there ! If you have sand and an established aquarium ( and have a research first ) go for it !
