I know this is a really stupid question. What do you mean by fresh seafood? Like a slice of salmon or shrimp in a clip or something?? Hmmm would like to try that.

Ive read that you can feed freshly chopped shrimp, squid or scallops. I havent tried it myself though. But i did receive a tip that bubble tip anemones love pieces of fresh scallop so i plan on trying it.
