Another cleaner wrasse, Just make sure you are feeding the wrasse since it can not live on cleaning your other fish alone, unless you have hundreds of fish.

any other "cleaning" fish or shrimp should do the job. make sure u get it to eat other foods as well, usually in aquaria they dont survive long just on the parasites.

ima bio major for the love, not the money
