as long as they are not frozen or cold to the touch they are ok. just make sure they are at least room temp and they will be fine. I feed my ps smelt all the time . the only problem is smelt stink up your hands even the frozen ones.

throw some water in the micro and then add smelt to the warmed up water. When its soft your set. Are the smelt your referring to come in a large clear bag, if so I feed some of mine the same stuff. Its good to feed your p's whole fish like those.

I just fill a bowl up with hot water, put the smelt in a sandwich bag and change the water a few times. Usually only takes about 10 minutes to thaw.

I just leave my smelt on a plate on top of the tank, where its warm from the lights, and its thawed within 20mins.

Obviously a larger fish will take a little longer.

Not sure what a scallop is so cant answer that really.
