That's cool. I def want to give one a shot at some point, mostly the electric flame scallop. They are amazing.

Just hope that you get some that settle up front. They have to be feed often and if they settle in the back it's impossible. I've heard of some gluing them down but I find it mean as you take away their natural defense

I understand what you mean by that. I was very very patient with my maxima clam to settle down. But since the scallops aren't interested in the light, why would they move around so much...just flow?

Thing is just super heavy tho.
that blows, your poor feet and another heavy object. may have to invest in some steel or composite toe boots for when you work on your tanks.

now a question, is it lack of flow, during a power outage, that can cause a take to die? if so why?

Lack of flow cuts off the oxygen.

Defense mechanism. If bothered they thrust themselves to safety.

The lack of water movement causes a loss of oxygen in the water
