I'm experienced with fish, but relatively new to inverts. I have a low light tank with no corals, but assorted filter feeders and gorgonians. (Feather Dusters, Flame Scallops) I was wondering if anybody had kept flame angels with scallops and feather dusters and if they nip at them. I had a bicolor with them and it left the scallops alone but pestered the feather dusters so much they would not come back out until 2 days after I removed the angel.

BTW, Thank you to all the people who have been helping me with my questions with my many previous posts. Your help is greatly appreciated!

If you can return the Flame Scallop, I would. They live very short lives in our tanks, until they die of starvation. Most can not keep them for more than a couple of months. Flame Angels shouldn't pester worms (ditto on the feeding with FDs as well), but you never know.

I've had my flame scallops for 1 and a half years now. I think I'm going to keep them. Same with the feather dusters. I just haven't taken the next step into corals.

All I do is give them Kent Micro Vert Filter feeder food once every three days. I use a syringe to target feed. I don't have a protein skimmer in there either, so I make a 30% water change everyweek. I originally bought 5 scallops one and a half years ago but 2 died within the first few months, one died last month, and the two I have left seem like they are doing well. I don't plan on returning them because they are cheap and seem to be doing well. Thanks a lot for the help.

Again Congrats! You seem to be doing something right, MicroVert and no Skimmer, I'll have to remember that. BTW, IMO, "cheap" shouldn't be a judgement making "disposable" animals okay to keep. More power to you with your seeming success, tho.

Oh, that wasn't my idea. I agree with you 100% with the fact that the price shouldn't determine what I do with the animal. My point was, that they are not extremely expensive, and they are also doing well. If they were say, $100 and had the same reputation, I would return them even if they were doing well. Sorry for the mix up, I'm totally against the "disposal animal" idea too.
