Ive never heard of anybody petting their fish is that considered normal by any means? or is it rare for them to be so friendly?
It's not "normal" exactly, or common by any means, CORAL magazine did an article about "the need to clean" a few years back. They related this behavior to cleaning behavior. They had a picture of a baby napoleon wrasse (22 inches!) in a coral export facility that would offer his loins to passer byes. Pretty hillarious!
