electric flame scallop

  1. General Reef Discussion
    My biggest concern are the tangs. Yes? No? Maybe? I see a lot of people do it. However, a 90 gallon is still just a 4 foot tank. I would love to have a blue tang and Powder Blue Tang. I have: 1 Ocellaris Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris) 3 Green Chromis (Chromis viridis) 1 Six Line Wrasse...

    A while back several participants discussed the short lifespan of electric flame scallops in captivity. After having one of my own dye after a couple of months we left the shell in the tank as our peppermint shrimp liked it for cover. One and a half months later we have a new baby flame...

    I put a peppermint shrimp in my tank to take care of aiptasia, which he did quickly. Now I noticed my electric flame scallop has been eaten out of it's shell. Do peppermint shrimp eat scallops?

    So like 2 weeks ago I saw some Electric Flame Scallops in Grand Forks, those are some of the coolest creatures I have seen! I stared at them for like 10 minutes, $19.95, thought about bringing a few home, but figured they like corners and with my luck they would hide behind my LR, so I should...

    Is something like this a bad idea for a reef tank with moderate water flow, sps, and some softies? This critter looks so incredible but it seems more often than not ultra-sexy saltwater animals aren't always a good idea for one reason or another (electric flame scallop for example)...

    I have decided to take over my daughter's 1.6 gal tank. (due to multiple homicides on the part of her silver shark, we were forced to turn him in to the LFS) I have a VERY cranky maroon clown in my 30 that I am hoping I can eventually put in here. My question is this: Is this tank too small...

    I think I got a pistol shrimp in my tank I have heard popping noises from the tank for the last 3 months and havent paid any attention to it because everything is thriving and snail and fish count is the same as it was 3 months ago. So it seems that the popping noise is coming from a pistol...

    While showing off the moonlighting on Rachel's 20 gallon reef tank, which we assembled at the last NANO meeting (Thank you Charles!), we noticed a "swarm" of something near the surface and upper third of the tank. They had come out of the live rock and were swimming towards the blue light of...

    My electric flame scallop is GONE! It was there 3 days ago before I left for a camping trip. Happily shooting electric sparks out its mouth. Checked tonight to do a top off, and noticed his empty shell broken in two. No sign on him anywhere. I fear something ate him. But WHAT? besides...
