The BiColor Cleaner Wrasse is also known as Cleaner Wrasses, BiColored Cleanerfish, and Yellow Diesel Wrasse Fish has been the focus of many research studies and are the most popular among buyers. The BiColor Cleaner Wrasse forms a great symbiotic relationship with other reef fish by cleaning them of their unwanted parasites. They are the peaceful attractive fish with a most intriguing “dance” that they perform to solicit other fish to allow them to remove parasites and debris from their body, fins, and mouths. Its size varies and reaches up to 4 inches in adults.

Though the BiColor Cleaner Wrasse is reef safe and peaceful, we recommend these fish be an option by experienced aquarists, as they are very difficult to keep. The BiColor Cleaner Wrasse is carnivorous and is considered to be an obligatory feeder. It can be kept in an aquarium containing diverse population of fish along with a variety of Ectoparasites, basically supplying enough natural foods to sustain the cleaners.
