The Cleaner Wrasse will invite fish to their “cleaning station” by performing a calming up and down movement of their tails. The dance of the Cleaner Wrasse seems to have an effect on the fishes that come to the station and the fishes in the area remain quiet and they will sit still in one position while the Cleaner Wrasse goes into their gills and sometimes open mouths nipping off small parasites and dead skin or slime from the visitor.
