I read in nancys book that the food should be 1/4 the size of the mantle because the claws could be to big if it is not. But what if you are feeding it thawed shrimp, could it be bigger sense it doesnt have the big claws and just take out what ever he doesnt eat? I am only asking because my octo is now just starting to take thawed shrimp.
