Can my betta eat CLAM?

I got some frozen clam at the petstore the other day to feed my goby...He seems to have gotten bored with bloodworms so I was going to try something else.
But I was wondering if I cut it up really small could my bettas try it as well? Or would that be a horrible idea?

I'd be worried about doing it. Clams have a LOT of connective tissue which makes them hard to digest for animals that wouldn't regularly have that diet. Bettas eat mostly soft bodied insect larvae which are easily digestible.

Thanks.That is a good point.
I'll just stick with bloodworms and shrimp for now.
