yeah thats my damsels name.well at least one of them.i was thinking at one point that i would collect all of them but thats just not happening once i found out how many there were and how unhospitable they can be on other tank mates.so i am thinking instead is to grab a not so common damsel and see how that goes.i dont suppose if anyone here has any cool damsels i should know about?

damsels are cool fish, but can be a bit mean if allowed to be.

actualy they are not that cool.they are lively and like i said sometimes you see a blue hue to them but they are also pretty big and mean.reef safe thought.i am thinking about keeping them and some domino damsels together in a euphylia tank.here is a huge blue damsel.[img][/img]

check out the gerabaldi damsel (spelled wrong i know), and sulphur damsel...they are two cool ones I have seen...but the gerabaldi costs like 30-50$, hardly damsel price

are they asses too?i got one of the blue velvets and it is real nice.just not sure how other tank mates will hold up to a larger bastard.thats why i want to make a damsel refuge for all those unwanted damsels.then i can free up room for the desireable damsels.no offense to the fish but you all know what i mean.

They probably are asses. And i have heard jewels or any in the genus plectroglyphidodon can eat sps. And the genus neoglyphidodon (with neon velvet) get butt ugly when they get big
