The Red Scallop is a marine bivalve mollusk known for its distinctively coloured, fan-shaped shell that exhibits vibrant shades of red and orange. Commonly found in sandy or rocky underwater environments, this scallop is admired for both its ornamental shell and its role in marine ecosystems as a filter feeder, helping to clean the water by removing plankton and organic particles. In aquarium settings, the Red Scallop adds a splash of colour and natural activity, though it requires specific care and water conditions to thrive.
