    CAPTIVE CARE - This is an extremely difficult fish to keep. They only eat parasites and dead skin off of other fish. They tend to starve to death in our aquariums in a matter of days or weeks. Of all the cleaner wrasses, the Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse is the hardiest, but still has a dismal survival record in captivity. Wrasses are known jumpers so the aquarium top should be covered.
