    looks really neat!

    I don't think they would do any harm on the shell like that.

    i think that they will be fine untill they start to grow all over the shell then they could possibly become a problem.

    They will spread, but I don't think they'll harm the clam unless they are touching the clam's mantle. I'd leave it alone.
