The Four Line Cleaner Wrasse, also known as the Red Sea Cleaner Wrasse. Four Line Cleaner Wrasse is a brilliant blue with four, horizontal, lighter blue stripes with purple trimming the tail.

The Four Line Cleaner Wrasse is well known for its feeding behaviour. It establishes a "cleaning station" often a cave or overhang, where it swims in a bobbing, dance like motion. Larger fishes come to the cleaning station to have ectoparasites removed. The Four Line Cleaner Wrasse swims around the fish picking off and eating the parasites. It often enters the mouth and gill chamber of large fishes.The Four Line Cleaner Wrasse or Arabian Cleaner Wrasse is actually a cleaner only as a juvenile. Four Line Cleaner Wrasse is a native of the Red Sea. It is a cleaner Wrasse that is much more durable and longer lived than the traditional Cleaner Wrasse of the Indo-Pacific specimen.

One Four Line Cleaner Wrasse should be kept per tank in a 30 gallon or larger community aquarium. It should be housed with other peaceful species, but may become aggressive towards small, more docile species and peaceful wrasses.

Four Line Cleaner Wrasse should have some live rock available for use as shelter and for food. As a juvenile, it will eat parasites from placid tank mates. Adults feed almost entirely on polyps of stony corals. This is one of the reasons this is such a hard species to keep in an aquarium. Four Line Cleaner Wrasse is a very fragile fish and should only be cared for by a very experienced aquarist.
