In which case you should have a true cleaner. With the false the fish goes to it to be cleaned or the wrasse approaches as if to clean the fish. Then it takes a quick nip at the fish taking a scale or small part of the fishes body and shoots off. I witnessed this happen in the LFS I spotted one in many years agoThanks Atoll A terrible photo, but the mouth is defiantly on the end of the snout...
I know, it’s inexplicable, the other Fem has taken flight and buried itself (hopefully ok), I don’t understand why the Feminus though, a reminder that any fish can go rogue, i can only put it down to grumpy old fish syndrome.. I’m faced with a difficult decision now, I’ve stressed the whole tank out now trying to catch the thing, I may just have to let nature take its course or risk my other fish... I’ll try the trap tomorrow when they have chilled out over night....Thats really peculiar, ive no idea why he did that
I got lucky in that both I've had have been small to start with My first earmuff lived for 5-7 years and died recently but I was lucky to get a second and have one in my tank againOne of my favourites too, is yours big

They're absolutely model citizens and I've never even seen the smallest amount of aggression from them
