scooter blenny and clam

He won't leave the clam alone! He stays either on it or by it at all times. He won't leave her alone, and she won't open up fully, is this normal?

It's probably a defensive posture. I've heard of fish getting snagged by clams when they shut. I don't think the clams eat them but rather they accidentally trap fish. It happened to me once. I'm missing a finger from an overzealous clam. It grew back though.

I had pics up once of a panther grouper that used a huge crocea of mine as a sofa. It only took a few weeks before the clam was dead. On another note I once had a 6" green wrasse that was eating corals and nipping at my clams. I was unsure what was causing my issues until I came home one day and found the wrasse stuck halfway in a closed clam. The wrasse died. Used to have pics somewhere.
