Live feedings???

I have a snowflake eel about 15" long i feed it frozen jumbo shrimp every other day. I read online somewhere that you should feed a moray eel live food every once in a while as a treat but wasn't sure if that was true. If it is what kind of live fish would I feed it

Also would it even hunt the live fish? It's used to me hand feeding it shrimp so would I have to hand feed it the fish?

It's not true at all as long as the eel is eating well and you are feeding it a nutritious food. It doesn't have to eat live food ever.

Ok thank you... I read that it's a good treat for them every once in a while But wasn't sure I it was completely true. But if I did want to feed it live food what would I feed it?
