The Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse, occurs singly, in pairs, and in groups. This unique fish forms a symbiotic relationship with other species by setting up a “cleaning station” to remove unwanted parasites that may have attached themselves. The Cleaner Wrasse will invite fish to their “cleaning station” by performing a calming up and down movement of their tails. These fish may even clean the inside of larger fish’s mouths and gills.
The Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse must be fed small quantities of fresh, meaty food multiple times per day.
