Seeing that Squiggly loves his live baby clams, could I buy a live little neck clam or cherrystone clam and cut it into little pieces to give to Squiggly?

Don't see why not! Some Octis in the wild can learn to drill thbrough a clam shell around where the adducter muscle holds the valves shut and get themselves a clam meal. It is a learned response tho' they don't seem to have any instinctive knowledge for its (unlike pouncing on crabs!!)
