    Not normally commensal with Tridacnid clams but probably found it as the closest thing to what it normally lives with. The Conch Fish actually lives inside the shell of a conch or a few types of bivalves.

    Astrapogon stellatus, Conchfish : aquarium

    (not my pic)

    It could also be Astrapogon puncticulatus which is a cousin to Astrapogon stellatus. Both are conch fish.
