Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse



The Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse is found singly, in pairs and in groups. This fish is unique and forms an symbiotic connection with other species through installing a cleansing station to eliminate parasites that might have attached to themselves. The Cleaner Wrasse is able to invite fish to join their cleaning station by calming the up and down motion from their tails. The fish can even wash the insides of mouths of larger fish and the gills. Produced by a brief supply chain that runs through the Western Indian Ocean in very tiny numbers. This species, known as the African bluestreak and the Maldivian Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasses are able to thrive in your home aquarium. With the need for specialized care, we suggest these species be only considered by an experienced marine aquarist. It is believed that the Bluestreak cleaner Wrasse requires plenty of space to swim in since they are extremely active and must be kept in a tank with different shaped and colored fishes in a community aquarium. A well-fitting enclosure or canopy is essential because they are able to leap out of open-top aquariums or open overflow containers with reef-ready displays. The Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse needs to be fed small amounts that are fresh and meaty foods frequently throughout the day since they don't have the capacity to consume huge meals in one sitting. A good selection of foods to choose from is small bits of vitamin-rich mysis shrimp frozen and vitamin-rich brine shrimp, as well as other small, meaty meals. Once they are fully adapted to the aquarium at home, these fishes may be provided with a premium quality marine flake, as well as tiny marine pellets food to complement their regular diet of nutritious frozen food.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
