If the mantle is moving and causing it to retract, you are likely getting a bit much.

So far the mantle is moving a bit, but gently. And it's doesnt look retracted at all.

as long as the mantle isn't folding over on itself, and the clam remains opens as i would expect, that's about all i worry about.
