If you use smelt or silversides make sure you perform a water change as they are quite oily.

And I just ment start out with sliversides because they have a lot of smell but I would use squid not to pricey and it's really good for them really meaty

Squid is primarily water based other than the head region (brain and tentacles) and best used as a vessel for gut-loading vitamins. For a newborn you'll prob be feeding portions more frequently (at least 3 times weekly) and can be judged by the size of the outer gut region. Once they approach juvenile stage they can be slowed to maintain proper weight control (you don't want an overweight shark). Sharks really aren't that messy while feeding unless feeding messy/oily/fatty foods since they tend to gulp their meals. What comes out on the other end is another story. I'd perform water changes for a newborn at least every other week due to their sensitivities.
