    Great article.

    I must say when my cleaner wrasse was introduced into my tank my regal wasnt happy and had war with him for a day. After that they developed a sense that he wasnt just there to harras him but was only there to clean and help out.

    Had the same experience when my cleaner shrimp wanted to jump onto my tangs. They didnt know what to do and eventually loved it!

    My coris formosa killed every cleaner wrasse I added to the tank until I found the coris a new home & since then it's been so peacefull but interesting as the tank came to life & not hiding all the time. Cool I'm glad you guys enjoyed the article I learned alot from it.
