Rare White Flame Scallop Bivalve Invertebrate
Rare White Flame Scallop
Ctenoides scaber, the flame scallop or rough fileclam, is a species of saltwater clam, a marine bivalve mollusc in the family Limidae. Despite their common name, flame scallops are not closely related to true scallops. This species is found in the Caribbean Sea.
The flame scallop is non-photosynthetic and requires supplementation with phytoplankton, and organic foods (ARK Ocean Blend Plankton) provided by using a small pipette/straw to dispense the food upstream of its location. Each Red Flame Scallop needs to be fed individually.
