  4. Shrimp & other Invertebrates
    What exactly do CPOs eat? Everyone usually just says they'll eat anything, but that doesn't really help me, I was wondering, is there anything that's recommended that is important for their diet? Like can I clip kale or anything else to a veggie clip to feed them? I have read that they eat...
