Photo of the Week - Electric Flame Scallop

This week's photo is actually 5 separate photos looped into a GIF file showing the electric pulses of an Electric Flame Scallop (Lima sp). Flame Scallops need both bright lighting and aggressive feeding to maintain this "pulsating" behavior in the fish tank. Given these requirements and good water quality, they should last a few years in captivity, depending on their age when collected. Their wild lifespan is usually less than 5 years.
