I just started my first saltwater aquarium and I have different varieties. I have one that is not very active and sits at the bottom of the tank but what impressed me is the neon damsel is coaxing that little one to swim. The neon damsel floats down to it with its tail fin and gives it a little nudge to make it swim. I thought that was really neat. The neon damsel is trying to help it stay alive is what it looks like to me.

    Try turning off filters before and some time after feeding. My damsels all stayed at bottom until I did this. If you have dominoes they're the toughest of any I ever had kept.

I have one of these, he lives with my orange toadfish, and I have actually seen him smack the toadfish in the face with his tail fin and the toadfish just sits there! He is a silly little fish and I like him a lot!

I have a domino in my community tank and he's been a bit strange lately, he or she is been rubbing up against a Tang and breathing very hard and quickly yesterday day I noticed it going crazy rubbing up against a rock. When I had a closer inspection, I realized it had a tub like organ coming out next to the anus its been squirting something on the rock and when I had another look today the rock was covered in what I think are eggs, I don't have any other domino in there to fertilize them, is this rare or has this happened to anyone else before? Please let me know.

    ''From my viewpoint and experience this is the symbol of egg laying, the fishes who have no male can lay unfertile eggs due to overburden of their abdomen.

    My domino damsels spawned yesterday, I found what looked like 1000 small white eggs attached to the glass, while one of the parents were guarding fiercely. Today I siphoned about 5 out with a syringe and looked at them under a microscope, 3 of them were moving inside occasionally and measured 0.3 mm across. I have set up a quarantine tank and will probably move them across to that tank tomorrow, don't want the other fish to eat them, or have them going through the stumps filtration.

Calmer & less aggressive than any other damsel I ever had. Actually got stuck in a strainer of a hose during a water change & was very scratched & cut up. Healed 100% & no issues. This fish is bullet proof. Was actually bullied by a domino damsel, til I got rid of the domino. I highly recommend this for a one damsel tank.

I can't believe that there are still people who use these fish to cycle their tanks! There is no need to torture fish just to speed things along for youself. Any real lover of reefs and marine aquaria would never be so cruel as to use a fish for cycling purposes.....amateur hour for noobs. THINK before you act. Live rock can cure by itself, it may take an extra week, but better then abusing animals.

We have 2 dominos and they both love our anemones. We thought that strange till we saw your picture.

    To my surprise, I too had my Domino Damsel get into my anemone. I noticed it allowing the anemone to sting it on several occasions and it would defend the anemone. I thought this unusual until I saw this picture. So is this normal for this species of Damsel? And what will happen to my Maroon Clown when it wants to join in? Thank you.

I have two of these fish. One is a bit bigger than the other. The big one is very aggressive. If I could catch it I would probably get rid of it. I can not put any new fish in the tank without it chasing them and making them hide all the time. My clown fish seems to hold its own against the bully fish. My dragon-net guy that hangs out on the bottom doesn't seem to get picked on either.
