Cleaner wrasse tips

Hi guys,

Recently bought a bluestreak cleaner wrasse and he is doing well so far. He is currently cleaning all my fish (except for the clown fish), and eating the food I provided him. (Saw lfs feed pellets to him and now I feed him daphnia and will feed cyclopods in the future). Is there any tips from successful people that would increase the chances of the cleaner wrasse living long?


I know that cleaner wrasses are vital to the reefs in our oceans and know they usually suffer from malnutrition overtime if not fed correctly. Please do not comment useless comments in this thread...

If it eating prepared foods you are off to a good start. Typically only the ones collected in Africa make it in aquariums

Fish are not disposable commodities, but a worthwhile investment that can be maintained and enjoyed for many years, providing one is willing to take the time to understand their requirements and needs

Current Tank Info: 625g, 200g sump, RD3 230w, Vectra L1 on a closed loop, 3 MP60s, MP40. Several QTs

Yeah, I've never had issues with the African blue streak cleaner; well, other than keeping them in the tank. A screen top is a must.


Got back into the hobby ..... planned to keep it simple ..... yeah, right ..... clearly I need a new plan! Pet peeve: anemones host clowns; clowns do not host anemones!

Current Tank Info: 450 Reef; 120 refugium; 60 Frag Tank, 30 Introduction tank; multiple QTs
