    I'm so sorry that this post has yet to be answered Here's some great info on your Scallop (File Clam) http://www.wetwebmedia.com/flamescallopfaqs.htm

    As for the Leather & Nem they should do fine as long as the nem stays put

    the tentacle on the inside its actually the gills. in a flame scallop the gills arent just used for feeding, its also what it uses to filter micro plankton. make sure you are dosing phytoplankton or other filter feeder food to keep your scallop well fed.
