Well I had my electric flame scallop die this weekend, and I can't figure out what killed it. I got it about a week ago and it was doing fine then I leave and come home about 5 hours later and the whole thing had been eaten by my inverts. Let me know what could have caused this sudden death, all my other filter feeding inverts are doing fine. Thanks

These are not particularly good to keep in most tanks. The problem is that they have a very specialized diet and require direct feedings with incredibly small micron-sized foods. I would highly recommend researching purchases prior to the actual purchase. These are well known to have extremely poor survival in home aquaria. I am sure it either starved or was very stressed out.
