Not electric, just a flame scallop. For 8 bucks when I stumbled upon it, I had to give it a shot. I'm sure those are many people's last statements, but the coco worm that has been in my tank for way over a year now is supposed to be in the exact same area of difficulty. So, I decided to give it a shot.

Sure why not. It has been awhile. Many things still recovering and the green tip bird's nest still needs to go away. Forgive the blues and being in the middle of a water change.

Nice scallop! I had an electric flame scallop for several months. From what I could tell it was doing great. Not sure if it died on its own and something ate it, or if something might have just ate it one day, but found it closed and empty not too long ago. I do have some decent size bristle worms lurking around in there a strawberry crab that I haven't seen in a long time also. That scallop was so cool though. You got a good deal on yours and good luck with him! They do tend to like dark places though, so there is a good chance it will get comfy somewhere very inconvenient as far as being able to see him good.

Oh, he's in a really nice spot in the front of the tank. In terms of their life span, it is supposed to take them months to starve to death. Might be what you ran into.
