  • Description
  • The Flying Scallop is a very elegant and colorful scallop. Flying Scallops have a fully pink to red mantle and tentacles.

    Flying Scallops reach a maximum adult size of around 4 inches and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 29 gallons in size. Flying Scallops are peaceful inverts and will not bother other inverts, coral or fish in your tank. This makes the Flying Scallop a great addition to reef tanks.

    Flying Scallops should be kept in tanks that have lots of live rock and substrate for them to wedge themselves in. Flying Scallops have the ability to move their bodies relatively quickly by shooting a jet of water out. Flying Scallops should not be kept with larger aggressive fish that like to eat fleshy inverts like triggers and puffers.

    Flying Scallops need to be kept in pristine water and can't tolerate high levels of nitrates or traces of copper. Flying Scallops are omnivores and need to be hand fed micro-plankton and phytoplankton to survive. Feeding Flying Scallops with a syringe that doses food in a stream that will reach the Flying Scallops is the best way to feed them. Flying Scallops are very hard to keep and only the most expert of aquarists should attempt to care for one.
