I tried freshwater clams, (not mussels) several years ago. They don't move, and they do not appear to eat, at least mine did not. Within two weeks they were all dead, or it took me that long to figure out they were dead from the smell... it was the most god awfull stench I have ever smelled in my life. It made me vomit to clean out the tank. It was very disgusting. Their bodies disintergrate into a jello very quickly, or perhaps more of an ooze... I had to tear down the entire tank, throw out the gravel and all the plants, and sterilize the tank to get rid of the smell. The stench lingered in my house for a few weeks!
Needless to say, that was my first and last experience with clams.
