Molly Milly Blennies eat clams?

Can anyone confirm or deny that Molly Milly Blennies eat clams? Are all blennies possible clam eaters. Ok wow, that sounded WAY wrong. But seriously, I have a small hitchhiker clam that I'm rather attached to, so I'd really like to know before I introduce a blenny. Thanks.

Let me start by saying I don't have any photo clams but I do have a few oysters and some mussels. I dont ever see mine messing with any of them. I do feed them oyster, clams, and mussels and they love them. I cant say if it would mess with a clam that can't close all the way. Maybe someone that has had them will chime in.

Ah right, mine is probably a mussel, no mantle. And hanging out in a cave. So a good point then maybe the blenny I read about was mantle munching, rather then whole sale shellfish attacking. Cool.

When I had my Molly miller Blenny it picked at my maxima clam. I’d say not clam safe.
