flame scallop

  1. General Reef Discussion
    Hi guys, I have my red file shell clam for a few months now and I just wondered how often you guys feed them? They can't photosynthesize like some other bi-valves so I have been spot feeding daily but I know that in captivity they almost always starve to death. Anyone know of signs that this is...

    My lfs sells flame scallops really cheap and i was wondering how hard they are to take care of. The guy i bought my tank from said he once had flame scallops in it but im not sure if i can take care of them. Has anybody had any experience with these?

    I just recently acquired a flame scallop and I was wondering if there was a proper way to feed them. I've heard so much stories of them dieing due to starvation

    Ok, so I bit the bullet and ordered a flame angel from live aquaria. I let yall know how it does with the corals. Interestingly, we have had a hitchhiker flame scallop for about a year. I would never buy one intentionally knowing their survival rate, but this guy hitched in on some great Florida...

    is it a good idea to keep flame scallops in a reef tank, and if so what special care would I need to provide to keep the scallop heathly.

    What makes them so difficult to keep? I always hear that they are... I'm not really thinking of getting any, but i was curious about what care they need and wondered if anyone here has kept any successfully long term...and what did they do that kept them healthy? Is their care different from...

    I've had my first reef tank going for about 10 months now and I'm confident in my reefkeeping abilities. I have only bought two corals since I started this thing, and my tank is looking kinda sparse. Reefkeeping on a college student's budget is tricky business. So if youre into spreading the...

    Hello Everyone! I'm new to this hobby as well as to NFMAS. I'm looking forward to meeting people at the next meeting, but I thought the best way to introduce myself might be to start a thread for my new tank. My tank is a 14g biocube. I've only made a couple of modifications to it so far...

    Oh Cwap! I pushed the wrong button. I started a blog! What do I do? What do I do? Ahhhhhh! That's right no one can answer me here. Someone told me that. What else did they say? Cwap! I wasn't listening. Stay calm. It's just me and my thoughts. WHO SAID THAT?! Ah man! I'm not alone in here...

    I listed this on craigslist and though it might be better to share here as well since you guys have helped in the past :) This setup is only a year old, I'm wanting to sell for a move. Full system measurements at largest points are 76.5"H x 76"L x 22"D, the tank itself is 30"H x 72"L x 18"D...

    Would anyone be interested in ordering from these guys for the meeting? I have ordered from them before and have been happy with the stock.

    So it seems I've contracted some type of parasite in my tank. I have lost a couple of chromis, but all the other fish seem to being doing pretty well. Whatever it is I don't see much on the fish (I think maybe oodinium) but some of the fish are still scratching. I've been doing all the "in-tank"...

    I was woundering if their is some detaild info on this message board or some website for a flame scallop. Not just genral info, like if you google it.

    Some local folks have tried to convince me to add a UV. One of them has an aquarium maintenance business and swears by them (even has some before and afters to back up the claim). So who here as any experience either good or bad? BTW...125 with a 55 sump...UV suggested was 36W.

    Sadly, I am thinking of selling my 90 gallon reef tank that I have had for about 2 years. I have been in the hobby now for about...oh 5 or 6 years and just do not seem to enjoy my tank anymore. With how busy my lifestyle is, and recently purchasing my first house I just do not have the time or...

    HELLO! And thank you for reading at this post; I am in desperate need of help and advice about my tank. To begin with I must tell you I don’t know much about this, I thought it was going to be like my fresh water tank with a little more of difficulty, so I got myself a 150 galon tank (I think...
