They are creepy. I can't stand them, but everyone is right, that's just me. They don't hurt the reef at all. Most wrasse will eat the little ones. My adult melanurus wrasse will rip a big one apart. But he will do the same thing to any shrimp I add.

agree with x. I have them, and while I too thought they were creepy at first, they are great to have for clean up. They do a good job keeping my sand cleaned up.
It seems like I had tons and tons of them when I first got my rock, but I am pretty sure they died down now with time and not overfeeding my tank.

What did the fish say when he swam into a wall? "Dam!"

Okay thanks! maybe I'll just have to get over their creepiness if they're so beneficial
