I agree that flake/pellet food isn't going to cut it for the CBS. They are basically scavengers but are strict carnivores that eat meaty type foods so frozen would be best.

Flake also tends to create more po4 problems IME whereas frozen properly thawed and rinsed before adding to the tank does not.

More info can be found in this post on feeding requirements of SW fish.

Anything wrong with using raw shrimp directly? Do I really need to freeze it first?

Nothing at all, I was referring to frozen for fish feeding because frozen brands like San Fransisco Bay, Ocean Nutrition, ect... come frozen and I like those brands because they have a good balance food and vitamins to give fish a more varied diet.

As mentioned in the link you can make your own mix using fresh seafood (shrimp, clams, oysters, saltwater fish, seaweed, vitamins, ect...) You still need to freeze it though if making your own.

I do feed raw shrimp to my CBS and Sea Star from the grocery store seafood counter but typically I still freeze it unless eating it myself

Just chiming in here...so you feed your critters shrimp from the store? Isn't it funny..we are so conditioned to buy stuff from the petstore for our pets we forget that we can give them what they actually would eat in nature.

Same goes for any pet really but I think it's the conveyance of having food pre-packaged which is why people typically go to the pet store. It's important to deal with quality food stores/products regardless though. Even then you can get into trouble like the recent example with menu foods.
