    I watch my golden-headed sleeper get cleaned, along with my blue Hippo Tang. The Trigger, not so much, he kinda ignores my peppermints and cleaners.

    The fish eats no less than 4 times a day. He won't be hungry.

    When I had an ich break-out last fall, my fish were waiting in line like old ladies for scratch off tickets. I think they wore my cleaner out every day, ALL my fish got cleaned. Except for my coris wrasse I should add, he was like "what the heck do you want??" lol

    all my fish exceptmy solar wrasse let my cleaner do it's job. The blue tank, diamond goby, clowns, and coral beauty all frequent my cleaner shrimp.

    Oddly I've never once seen my cleaners clean a single fish in my system?

    my shrimp will go hang upside down on the same rock and then the fish swim over to him. Thats the only time they will go to him though is when he's upside down on his rock. it's kinda cool.
