The Flame Scallop, Lima scabra, is actually a bivalve mollusk and possesses the ability to propel itself through the water if threatened. Its rough shell is covered with small bumps and its fleshy interior has bright red appendages it uses to filter the water column for food. It is best housed in an established reef tank with plenty of live rock as it will use rocks and coral to create a nest. They are peaceful, can be kept in multiples, and should not be housed with aggressive tank mates. Because the Flame Scallop is a filter feeder and does not rely on photosynthesis, it is necessary to provide it with supplemental feedings of phytoplankton for survival. If cared for properly, the Flame Scallop is a fascinating organism to observe and would certainly add a splash of diversity to your tank.
