    You should not need to do anything special. The clam will protect its mantle from fish on its own. Just make sure you search for a healthy clam, local is always better. Fish will pick on clams that are already on their way out. On the good side fish will develop relationships with healthy clams. Here is a clown that hosted one of my clams.

    My display is 4X2 120Gal, with 2-250W MH, 4 T5 54W. Cal~400, alk~9, phosphate & nitrate detectable but not a issue, temp between 81-78 summer 77-79 winter. Clam will be stressed from shipping, so should i protected with the plastic canvas until it get healthy? I always buy local if i can, but the clam online are so pretty especially the Tahitian clam.
