Talking Cpo arrived today!!!!!!!!!!

Just got the CPO i ordered from AQua Bid. The thing is awsome. I'll have pics up and posted, he's in the tank with the lights off right now. It was shipped priority mail from Arizona.

Does any1 have any advise for caring for him. I have Omega One sinking pellets, is this my best bet.


thanks

Me too, I'm really looking forward to pics. Why do they call them CPO's anyway?? I always see that and think "Cheif Petty Office", lol.

Oh I can't wait on them pic's how big is he/she? How's your water doing, did you drip acclimate slowly?
Care: Much like Shrimp they'll eat pretty much any bottom feeder pellets, algae wafers, sperulina, dried pumpkin (good for their coloration), cucumber, squash, lettuce.
Temp 50-77F pH 6.5-9 GH 6 and up
What else would you like to know??

Kym CPO = Camballus patzuarensis orange

That'll do just fine; but over time try offer a variety of food for best health and color!

Kym gals get around 1.5-2" and guys stay a lil bit smaller then that usually 1-1.5".

I want ONE!!! *starts to plan a tank around one....*

Do they eat plants? What about suitable tankmates? I kept an Electric Blue Cray awhile back. Ate every plant in the tank... I mean MOWED them down LOL. And ate any fish it could catch.
