Thank you very much. I do not have Twitter, but I was able to view the reply.Response from @mucktopus (via Twitter):
Thanks. I picked up 3 smaller live clams from the local store. He has not touched them at all but I'm hopeful he may figure out what they are in the next day.Pretty sure you have the correct ID with Abdopus aculeatus (AKA algae octopus).
Anything you eat from the ocean is fine to offer but don't buy in quantity until you are sure it will eat the offering. Regular table shrimp offered on a feeding stick are often a good choice. Another favorite are blue crab claws. The claws can be frozen (but not the whole crab). Be sure you make it clear that you are collecting claws that have already been severed (ie not claws you removed) from any live bins you scavenge.
If he/she does not attempt to eat one, you can offer it on the half shell. I don't suggest this with muscles or oysters but clams don't cause a clean up problem.I picked up 3 smaller live clams from the local store.
