    shrimp and calamari

    im a manager of a rerstaurant in Downtown Ottawa the serves big ass cocktail shrimp and calamari. I have been feeding my anemones cocktail shrimp and they readily consume it and show great signs of "getting Chubby". My question is: can I drop a few calamari in my tank. for those who dont know, they are little squid. the heads are cut off and they look like little octapus.

    you could but silver sides work best as they have all the guts still intact and thats whats normaly recommended. A variety is best.shrimp,calamari[might be to oily] scallop and silver sides is what I used.
