How come my clam's mantle extends so much does that mean it's not getting enough light or he is unhealthy? I have only had him for a couple of months I placed him on this rock and he turned himself once and then stayed there.

Thanks,
Brian

Looks like a happy clam to me. The white new shell in the first pic shows that it is growing too.

Ok thanks! I was just worried because this is my first clam and I just don't remember seeing clams in the store extend the mantle out that far.
