    I attempted a water change tonight. When I put my vacuum into the water of my sump (pump end) I jerked my hand back. When I touched the water, I could feel an electric charge, almost like a steady static electric power. I've heard about this before, but never experienced it. I am a bit lost...

    I am sure I have seen one before but does any one know what type it is? I am not talking about an electric flame scallop but a clam. I think it is a crocea but could be wrong.
