Sea Scallops
Scallops share a two-part shell with a hinge and foot, though they have no true head. All are filter feeders, requiring food designed for these types of invertebrates. If they are threatened, they can escape using water propulsion by clapping their valves together.

 Bright Red Flame Scallop
Lima scabra
Description: The flame scallop or rough fileclam, Lima scabra, is a marine bivalve mollusc in the family Limidae. Although their name would suggest otherwise, flame scallops have no relation to scallops, besides their exterior. Flame scallops have a rough outer shell with a red mantle. Surrounding the mantle are red and white tentacles. The gills are used for respiration and filtration.The flame scallop's vibrant red color is due to the large amount of carotenoids found within their body. Flame scallops can reach 3 in long. he Flame Scallops only enemy comes from certain shrimp and crabs and if threatened it simply pushes its valves together to propel titself away from the dangerous situation.
Diet: Because flame scallops have no photosynthetic properties, the flame scallops eat only phytoplankton filtered from the ocean water. During the consumption process, flame scallops sift and sort through the phytoplankton with their gills to determine what is appropriate for ingestion. In an aquarium flame scallops require excellent water quality and either frequent water changes for fresh food or the addition of an invertebrate food containing phytoplancton. T
Reef Compatability: Excellent in a fully seasoned reef aquarium.

 Electric Flame Scallop
Description: The Electric Flame Scallop is a sub-species of the Flame Scallop. It has the same bright red mantle as the flame scallop, but it also has a strip of bio-luminescent tissue on its mantle that sends a flash of color back and forth over the mantle. This bio-luminescent tissue is bright enough to be seen at night and is what gives the scallop its name.
