Damn good read. Interesting to see not only the reduction in parasites but also enhanced colouration through stress reduction.

Where from Daz. I need to replace mine that passed on after the tank transfer? Need fair sized ones so the wrasse doesn't take a liking to them!

Our cleaner doesnt really clean but the possum wrasse has been observed exhibiting cleaner behaviour.... but the anthias ALWAYS used the cleaner shrimp. The shrimp normally only clean if a fiah presents itself (less likely to be eaten)
