Today i repaired my white lights and when i turned them on to check I finally got to view one of my clams in good light. I noticed a sorta of double siphon type creature on the side of its shell. Can anyone Id the creature at all?

I vote tunicate also and I would consider benificial. It looks like it has a intake and an exit opening. If you use a bamboo scewer and bump it you should see them close up. I have mushrooms growing on the sides of clams so I doubt a tunicate will bother yours and leave it in place.

Yes that was what I was thinking but I like the confirmation!

When I turned a flashlight on to it the siphons got smaller, also as a crab walked past and brushed it they got smaller then reopened. I think it will be fine and is not hurting the clam at all!

Thanks everyone
