Cleaning station

Pavla Hanáčková / Linh Dao

Even though fish live in water, they still need a wash and brush up! They don’t need any soap though – just a bunch of cleaners! All they have to do is swim by a cleaning station, get in line, and wait their turn. Little fish soon take charge of them, cleaning parasites from the surface of their body, gills, and oral cavity. About 45 species of fish and many shrimps provide this cleaning service.

We l c o m e ! Th i s i s m y n e w cleaning station.

If there’s any place that the fish’s tiny mouths can’t reach, shrimps come to the rescue. Their long legs and claws provide an excellent tool. Shrimps use them to cut away pieces of protruding skin, or to pick leftover food from teeth.

Wrasses run their cleaning stations in coral reefs around the world’s seas and oceans. There’s no shortage of clients as wrasses are indispensable in this regard. They remove not only parasites and bacteria from their customers’ skin, but also damaged or dead skin cells.

Competition is stiff, so the cleaners have to know how to best attract customers. Wrasses rely on their striking colouration to instantly catch the attention of potential clients. They also move their body so that the sunlight will reflect on it. Shrimps, meanwhile, wave their claws and sometimes even add showy dance moves!

Shrimps – cleaning specialists

So, why is this process mutually beneficial? Well, the fish end up amazingly clean, while the cleaners have a welcome feast. Even sharks, rays, cephalopods, and turtles enjoy this good service.

There are long queues, but all the customers wait in an orderly fashion – except for one predator. The Barracuda is attended to as a matter of priority and never has to wait. There are no objections as none of the queue wants to end up as a convenient snack!

These should keep Ada busy.

his narrative non-fiction series tells the stories of great moments in science as if through the eyes of the scientists and inventors themselves. The stories are told like an adventure, with all the dramas, missteps, and struggles along the way, ultimately leading to the ‘Eureka’ moment of triumph. The books use all the tropes of fiction – dialogue, action, suspense – to tell true-life tales of human discovery and achievement.
