We think this fish is worth a try even though generally regarded as “difficult”, or “expert”.
For us, in addition to cleaning and picking at other fish, it appears to have an overall calming influence (for lack of better terms) in the tank. In our opinion, our wrasse contributed to the successful acclimation of one of our favorite fish, the Copperband Butterfly.
Contrary to reports that these fish are difficult to feed, our Wrasse eats everything we feed and has done so since added to the tank.
Their coloration and movement is another positive.
