    it is a sad but true case in places like where i currently am,(hong kong) many people wont even bother to research and buy on impulse and most shops here wont tell u diddly squat unless youre quite friendly with them already. Real problem is.stuff is so cheap here... i see flame scallops all the time... fresh... but i think they may be aquacultured here...as they also sell similiar live scallops with the tentacles and stuff for food.... The rate of turn over for livestock here is incredible, most shops get a shipment everyweek and most of it will be gone the first day it arrives...

    Well mine passed on 2 weeks ago. I came home and my hermits were eating it. they never went near it before so I figure it was dying and they cleaned up the left overs. It was beautiful but hid most of the time under a rock.
