Feeding or teasing fish and marine life in it´s various kinds is not at all recommended.
Firstly you are interefering with Nature own paths where animals have to hunt for prey to survive; if that habit get´s too disturbed, than you have a pre-domestic marine animal that might loose it´s abilities to find it´s own food.
Secondly, by feeding or teasing, you´re putting yourself in danger as well as your fellow buddy. Remember, even if you are doing it with a potencially non-agressive being, others in the vicinities might find a gourmet meal very interesting; result: you might end up being surprised by another species who can in fact inflict you injuries.
The old saying: "Don´t screw with the bull, because you´ll get the horns", can be applied in a multitude of situations; that includes SCUBA, and includes marine life interaction.
