muscles

I was at a friends place the other day after harvisting some muscles from the shore for dinner he is busy cycling his new tank so we thaught it would be a good place to keep the muscles fresh.

When I left he asked if I would leave a few for the tank which I did.
He reports that they have cleaned up the tank overnight.

Has anyne tried this do any of you keep muscles in your SW tanks if so are there any special conciderations for them ie lighting feeding aration.

I heard of the local university using an artificial muscle bed as part of there filtration mut cant find any info on it and the technician who used to run it has left.
