Cleaner Fish Cleaning symbioses are found in the sea, in freshwater, on land and in the air, but the greatest number of examples concern marine species. It is essential for all creatures to have some method of keeping themselves clean and free from parasites. If they do not, they will probably fall ill from infected wounds or the effects of disease and blood loss from parasites. For those species that are unable to clean themselves it is obviously vital to find some other animal to perform this cleaning function. The vast majority of cleaners are fish; at least 45 species are known cleaners and there may well be more. Fish that are habitually cleaned often have to modify their usual behaviour to allow the cleaners to do their work. It is not normal for aggressive species like shark, barracuda and moray' eels to allow small fish to swim safely near them. With known cleaner species, however, these and other fish change their attitude completely and allow the cleaners all over their bodies without displaying any ferocity towards them. Continued. .. AR/SR/FUNO 6/1 l LE10032/PIE 0035 ADVANCED ENGLISH 29 MARCH 2004 The clients will slow down or stop completely (unusual behaviour for most fish, as they usually move all the time), Open and close their mouths and gill covers and assume awkward-looking postures to help the cleaners. It is quite possible that some species have become extinct because of an inability to establish a cleaning symbiosis. So many individuals could have fallen foul of ectoparasites, fungi and bacteria that the population was made inviable. Some fishes change colour while being cleaned. Black Surgeon Fish go from black to blue when they are being cleaned by Labroides dimidiatus. The Goatfish changes from pale brown to pink while the same cleaner picks it over for parasites. Fishes being groomed guard their cleaners against danger by warning them of the approach of predators. The Nassau Grouper when cleaned by gobies warns its cleaner by suddenly closing its mouth, leaving only a small gap to allow the goby to escape. Even if the grouper is in imminent danger itself it takes time to warn the goby. This shows the regard that the client feels for its cleaner and the service that it performs. Several species of cleaner set up cleaning stations in one particular place. The local fish soon realize where the cleaner is located and will visit it whenever they require cleaning. Quite astonishing numbers of fish are cleaned in this way: not only territorial species that would normally be found in the area but also migratory ones which have gone out of their way to visit these stations. Client fish will patiently wait their turn to be cleaned, and even form orderly queues. Quite a considerable amount of observational and experimental work has been done on these cleaning stations. Limbaugh, for example, discovered that over three hundred fish can be cleaned by a single Senorita Fish in a six—hour period. These fish go back to the same cleaner every few days for another session and this enables them to remain in peak condition. Limbaugh also did some experiments in waters off the Bahamas. He removed all the cleaner fish from one locality and observed the effects on the Species normally found there. Within two days the numbers of fish were severely reduced and within two weeks almost all the territorial fish had disappeared. Those that remained had developed the fuzzy marks that are an indication of fungal infection. It had been shown in previous experiments that the introduction of cleaners into an aquarium infected by fungi can restore its inhabitants to health. From the above the value of cleaning symbiosis in the marine habitat can easily be seen. Without the work of all the cleaners of the ocean, the effects of parasites, fungi and injury would kill many more species than they do already. The Senorita Fish is an example of a typical cleaner. It is of the wrasse family and lives off the coast of California. It is an active, small, cigar-shaped fish that the local people call the Senorita because of its cleaning habits. lts client fishes include the Topsmelt, Black Sea Bass, Opaleye, Blacksmith Fish and many more. These fish are almost all much larger than the cleaner and would normally prey on wrasses of the Senorita’s size. They do not attack the Senorita, however, but wait patiently until it is their turn to be cleaned, hold themselves still and often in the most peculiar postures while being attended" to. The fish in the area of the coast that the Senorita Fish inhabits are especially troubled by fungal infection, and removal of the white growths caused by the fungi is the cleaner°s most Continued...

The cleaning phenomenon has been observed for many years to the extent that one species is popularly called the Cleaner Fish or Wrasse. It is a small, slim fish with cyan-coloured body, striped with darker blue or black. The cleaner fish goes onstage further than the Senorita in that it actively attracts clients by “dancing.” It swims in a vertical position, head downwards and undulates its body from side to side. This is a most unusual posture for fish, as they usually swim horizontally to the sea bed. This “dancing” makes the cleaner noticeable to even the most myopic fish, and it has become the cleaner’s trade mark. Clients line up, as for the Senorita, until it is their turn to be cleaned, and also allow the little fish to enter their mouths and gill cavities unharmed. The contents of various species’ stomachs have been examined to assess the quantity of cleaner fish that are eaten, both by fish that are known clients and others. It has been found that very few cleaners are consumed by any species, although fish of similar size make up the bulk of the diet. So few cleaner fish are eaten that it seems probable that the small number that are taken accidentally by absent-minded clients rather actively predated upon. Source: Broukal, M.
