"A little over a year ago I was a beginner, at best, marine tank enthusiast. When a coral beauty that I had recently introduced into the tank displayed signs of a parasite, I became very concerned and sought advice from the aquarium shop that I patronize. They recommended a cleaner wrasse, which I promptly bought. Had I read the information that has been shared in this site by seasoned authorities like Dr. Abby Schwarz, I would not have purchased my cleaner wrasse. However, I do wish to share my experience with other fish lovers that may find themselves in the same predicament as I was a year ago. "Doc", my cleaner wrasse, is an incredible fish. He has a personality and interacts with people that look at his tank. He is extremely inquisitive and loves to explore all areas of the tank. He is also capable of communicating with me when he is hungry, as he breaks into a dance-like movement. If he is full, he goes about his business of exploring, checking out fish for parasites and just cruising in the tank. I have had Doc for one year now and I am happy to state that he has done well and has even grown in size. After learning about the plight of the cleaner wrasse, I read as much about this fish as I could. I introduced him to many varieties of food and can share with you my findings. He loves to pick and choose through Rod's assorted food (for smaller fish). He will eat frozen Mysis shrimp and cyclops. But, he absolutely loves live brine shrimp and blood worms. He will also eat flakes once he is used to eating the live and frozen foods I described. Doc also loves to pick at my hands and arms when I am cleaning or working in the tank. Apparently he likes to pick off dead skin that is common in humans. Everyone in my office is in love with Doc and share in the opinion that such a wonderful and useful fish is better left in his own environment. As I cannot afford a trip to the Indo-Pacific ocean area to set him free, the best I can do is continue to provide the best possible care. "
