    Additional Information & Description

    This is a tank raised cleaner wrasse from Sustainable Aquatics. Its eating pellets as well as frozen foods.

    Just picked it up today so keeping my fingers crossed that it keeps eating.

    I have to be careful though... when my vortech is off, it goes right into the wetside and hangs out.

    Too cool! I didn't know there were tank raised cleaner wrasses, Having one that eats pellets and frozen is awesome!

    The vortech shouldn't be a problem...but definitely something to keep in mind if I need to turn it off for any reason.

    One of my resident fish gurus tells me he is skeptical about my purchase. I guess we'll see how it goes. I know they eat pellet and arctic pods.

    I guess another problem with cleaner wrasses if they live is they pester all the other fish to death. I guess for me that isn't a problem...since mollies are cheap.

    At least it is a saltwater fish. We are moving in the right direction. With any luck it will rid your tank of "Mollie Disease".

    Looks great. We were skeptical at first as well, but eating prepared food is plus for sure!
