Yeah you can keep anything you want in a fowlr, but it depends on what fish you get. You obviously can't get something that eats shrimp and keep shrimp lol

I'm gonna assume all the defenseless inverts like cleaner shrimp, small pistol shrimps, small crabs, feather dusters, etc.

It actually depends on the individual fish. For instance I have a lawnmower blenny most actually eat algae. mine don't I feed it formula two flakes hoping that is enough algae in his diet but to eat sheets of nori or hair algaeforget it he will wait until I feed the other fish to eat. My other lawnmower would only eat algae based food and algae.
