    My cleaner wrasse is getting quite thin, it tends to swin round when the food is put in but doesn`t peck at much. Still very active but I am a bit concerned. I feend brine shrimp live and frozen and flake.


    If it is healthy you don’t have to worry.Be sure that it has not sign of any disease and that there isn’t an aggresive fish that is bodering it.

    Keep varying with foods, like brine shrimp,frozen food,dried food ecc.


    is it a red sea cleaner wasse? i’m sure the other one, can’t remember its name though doesn’t do well in aquaria, due to it only eating parisites. i don’t think the red sea one suffers so badly..


    Its just a normal cleaner wrasse (sky blue and white with a black stripe). I have kept one before but never had the same problem (it may come to its very lively???).
    Don`t really know what it can be.


    Yes Doh you are right it needs a specialised diet of mainly parasites.We just can’t keep enough fish in our tanks to provide it with the right diet.I have tried two in the past before i realised,IMO they should be left in their natural habitat,not to be a spoilsport or anything.
