    There are snails without shells. It could be just that.

    But we wont be sure until we see a pic.

    Your clam should be fine. It may be irritated right now, so give it some time to get re-adjusted.

    Snails without shells are slugs. Most slugs (nudibranchs) are bad. If it had a flat, fingernail like shell, then it's a stomatella, which is good. Hard to tell without a pic though.
