It's been two years since I got my first blue 'Devil' Velvet Damsel and I would like to say that the fish has been a pain in the butt. 'Devil' eats all the food I put in the tank, leaving no food for my other fish. Always pushing them around, everytime I add a new rock it's moved, and my sand is dug out from under the rocks so he can swim from one side to the other. Everytime I fix it, 'Devil' digs out the sand again. He's tried to bite on two occasions and the little guy has teeth. What can I say, I love the little guy, just wish he would just relax a bit.

I hate my damsel! He was nice when I first bought him and has grown to about 4 times his original size. He has since made it virtually impossible to put any new fish in the tank because he constantly harrasses and picks at them. Trying to remove him has been a chore as well. I don't recommend this fish, period! unless you have larger fish that could put him in his place.

I have a breeding pair of three stripes and I am finding them to be extremely durable. I have a variety of different snails and they seem to do well with all 7 of them. I am pretty impressed with my little pair. As most have stated they are aggressive when you place your hand in the tank. Mine haven't tried to bite me, they more less swim and hide. Mine are still fairly young so I am awaiting for them to lay some eggs. The male seem to turn darker colors when anything gets near the rock cave. I would suggest anyone starting out to get damsels or if you have have less timid critters such as snails, I am still slowly adding to my aquarium. They are a great investment I believe.

My canary damsel is the hardiest of the hardiest! He has lasted through two cycles in both of my tanks. He's a soldier!

I bought my first black and white damsel three weeks ago. When frightened his white stripes turn black and he refuses to show any signs of life. He tends to hide in the closest plant and goes into shock when he senses any sudden movement or drastic light change. He definitely didn

Put one of your arrows on the Hawaiian islands! I just saw the most perfect example of a Domino Damsel in a tide pool near the Wiakaloa area on the Big Island.

We were advised that domino damsels should be purchased in three. No problem with ours, but I noticed recently that they are not a black as they were. However, unfortunately my yellow tang died after five days, later found out that it need seaweed as part of its diet. Was not advised this when first purchased, unfortunately it takes a while to find someone who is able to give the right advice when purchasing fish. However we have two tanks and we absolutely love them, I suppose you live and learn. However just purchased a fox fish, very unusual and quite a character.....

Ha, thats funny! I have a porcupine puffer and cloudy damsel as well, and he doesn't stop terrorising all of them, including my maroon clown which he beat up pretty bad once! Sometimes I wish my puffer would take him out!

I have 2 clownfish and they're very cool. I also have a lot of other saltwater fish. My cat stickes her paw down in the aquarium because she thinks they are pretty, but she can never catch them.

Hi I'm new to this but am looking for a bit of help and support. I have two clowns, one lyretail anthias, and plenty of cleaners. Just added two little yellow tail's, and have seen most of the traits others have mentioned so far. Only two thing I'd appreciate help with. Hope it's pecking order, but it's the lyretail anthias that's bullying the yellow tails? 2nd: are these known to get White spot, out of my depth with this, one just has little White speck near his rear fin? Any help?
