    @Wes I have a clam that was ripped of of its rock leaving its foot behind and it survived, It has regrown its foot and stuck its self on to another rock once again. I also read that its a gonnor but left it in the tank and it pulled through. So give it a chance before you chuck it, it might surprise you, mine did.
