The Hawaiian Cleaner Wrasse is commonly referred to as the Cleaner Royal Wrasse. With its yellow front half and blue posterior half, it makes a captivating addition to any tank. The Hawaiian Cleaner Wrasse needs a tank not less than 30 gallon along with plenty of live rocks for shelter. It requires care and needs to be kept by an experienced aquarist only. The Hawaiian Cleaner Wrasse needs a diet of live brine shrimp or black worms. It thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4. The Hawaiian Cleaner Wrasse flourishes well in high light intensity aquarium, and are peaceful in nature and should not be kept with highly aggressive fishes. It is obligatory parasite pickers and slime eaters and are virtually guaranteed to starve in the home aquarium. They often found pestering tank mates by incessantly attempting to groom their bodies and fins. Since it is carnivorous, it is difficult to feed in captivity but it may accept small meaty foods such as Mysis shrimp, brine shrimp, and zooplankton. The Hawaiian Cleaner Wrasse prefers a thick sand bed to burrow at night and usually forms a balloon-like, mucous cocoon, and spends the night resting within it, but will burrow as well. When you are swimming the reef you will come across "cleaning stations" where you find other reef fish stopped for the Hawaiian Cleaner Wrasse to pick them over to remove any parasites they may have on their bodies or in their gills.
