Imported out of the Caribbean it is a heavy filter feeder.

The Red Scallop has blazing scarlet tentacles emerging from its mantle creating a spectacular display. It can open and close its shell to move itself and find a shady cave to live in. Once it is comfortable it sends out threads from its foot to secure itself. It is a peaceful filter feeding animal which requires additions of phytoplankton in order to thrive. It may be pestered by predatory snails and crabs, and some fish that may nip on their mantles such as angelfish and butterflyfish. It may grow up to 3.5 inches.
