Cleaner Wrasse are a very popular, streamlined species with a simple, but attractive coloration on a cigar shaped body. Cleaner Wrasse are endemic to the warm, tropical reefs of the Indo-Pacific and are appreciated by most fish species that they encounter. Cleaner Wrasse get their name from their eating habits; they mainly feed on parasitic organisms which they continuously groom from other fish. Their color form varies by location, but they are generally a combination of varying shades of blue, silver, black, and sometimes tan to yellow. Cleaner Wrasse are naturally peaceful and may coexist well with a wide variety of other marine species. Cleaner Wrasse are quite popular within the hobby and are usually readily available through local and online retailers.

Cleaner Wrasse require an established aquarium of at least 55 gallons and they prefer open swimming space in addition to plenty of live rock for grazing and shelter. They should also be provided with a live sand substrate where they can sift for benthic zooplankton. They are generally a hardy species (once established), but should be provided with quality biological and mechanical filtration in conjunction with a protein skimmer. Wrasse are known jumpers and their aquarium should be equipped with a sealed hood system in order to prevent injury or escape. They are a peaceful species that will get along well with other peaceful tank mates; many more aggressive fish tolerate them due to the cleaning services they provide. Cleaner Wrasse will do well in a reef or FOWLR environment as they will not harm coral species, sponges, or larger ornamental shrimp species.

Cleaner Wrasse are carnivores that mainly feed on parasites and zooplankton in the wild. In the aquarium, they will try to groom other fish for food, but can be supplimented with live planktonic life via grazing on live rock, live sand, and the addition to a colonized refugium. They may also accept live brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, blackworms, and ghost shrimp as well as finely chopped or prepared meaty marine foods such as bloodworms, krill, clams, and crabmeat. Selcon may be used to further enhance the nutritional value and vitamin content of prepared foods. Feed 3 times per day and only what will be consumed within a few minutes.

note they can be very hard to keep and to get to eat, I had tried six different foods before I found one it would eat.
mine will only eat bloodworms and the tangs seaweed.they also love cyclop-eeze.

The Yellow Wrasse is also referred to as the Golden Rainbowfish, Golden Wrasse, Yellow Coris, or Canary Wrasse. It is golden-yellow with a black eyespot on the dorsal fin.

A 50 gallon or larger aquarium with a sealed lid, a 2-3 inch sandy bottom to hide under when frightened, and other peaceful Wrasses, including its own species, provides a good environment. It will eat fireworms and pyramidellid snails, protecting corals and clams. In addition, it may eat feather dusters, wild shrimp, tubeworms, and flatworms. It may also eat parasites off of tank mates.

The Yellow Wrasse diet should include vitamin enriched frozen mysis shrimp, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, and other meaty foods along with a high quality marine flake and marine pellet food.
