Electric flame Scallop

I read that these are tough to care for. What are your thoughts on this scallop? What do they need to survive?

These are def hard to keep. I HAD one a long time ago, but didn't know enough to be able to keep it alive. I think they need live phytoplankton, like a clam, to survive. I was feeding live phyto, but other things tripped me up at the time.

Longest I kept several were 5yrs before I gave them away due to a move. They did quite nicely on phyto spot-fed daily (at least every other day).
