[quote="Charlie"]"My info" needed some updating. The Flame Scallop died after about 6 weeks. I think it may have starved. The scallop moved behind the rocks and could not be target fed even if I was so inclined. Eventually, I found the shell opened and it was picked clean, probably by the Angel.
Typical MO for flame scallops I have never heard of anyone keeping one for more than a few months. They require emaculate water conditions and typically move behind rock work where they shrivel up and die potentially contributing to worse water conditions if you do not have a large clean up crew. IMO
, probably should not be in the general aquarium trade, or at least come with a warning. Problem is they are so cheap and the novice buys them without knowing.
Lighting is a must for those corals. With what you described is coming you should be fine to try some soft corals and LPS
. Suggest you do some reading and possibly pick up a book such a Sprung's corals to better decide what is appropriate for lighting needs, feeding and placement.
Most of the corals in my "my info." would do well in your setup.
