I'd like to be more helpful, but I know that these guys don't often fare well long term in home aquariums. They are filter feeders, and it's difficult to keep them fed AND keep their water in good shape. I wish you the best of luck.

Scallops are filter feeders and require large amounts of food being target fed to them to survive which normally fouls a tank with excess nutrients and creates water quality issues .Every year hear in Florida we have scallop season and I bring a few home for my tank I have never had one over three months,and when I see them declining I stick them in with my eel to eat ..I would stay away from future purchases of scallops there one of those animals that should remain in the ocean or on a dinner plate...

Btw in your sand I noticed fw neon gravel .FYI salt water is very corrosive and eventually will break the dye or paint down and release potential toxic substances in your tank ..
