Flame scallop in a crevasse, advice needed.

I have a flame scallop who managed to get itself stuck between two rocks.
Here are my questions:
1. Does the scallop need alot of light? (xooxanthellae?)
2. Does it need alot of water movement, or should the amount going through there be enough?
3. If I have to move it, how?

It'll move itself to wherever it wants to be. And from my experience it isn't a light creature, but a filter feeder. You might also do some research as to what additives, or what you might be able to spot feed them as they're terribly difficult to keep alive without special treatment.

I use cyclop-eeze and c-balance to help all my filter feeders, I've heard spot feeding can be harmful to the tank (as people usually feed too much), I knew it filter fed, but I thought it might also have xooxanthellae. As for it moving itself, it can't. It is stuck between two rocks as I stated, that is why I want to know if I should help it along.
