Default Flame Scallop

While Flame Scallops are beautiful, they are very short lived. they are filter feeders. They do not have to be target fed. One of the problems is they do not stay where you put them. They move around alot untill they find a spot they are happy wtih, usually somewhere you can't see them very well. They only live about 2 years, and you have no way of knowing how old they are when purchased. So you can be getting a scallop that is already almost 2 years old so they don't have very long to live. If you are going to get one try picking a small one, so it possibly young.
