Thread: Favorite Damselfish?
02-08-2013, 02:00 PM #11
We have 7 different damsels in our tank. They all have something that we love but the best has to be the Talbot's Demsel. It is not the nicest looking, most active or the biggest damsel we have, but we love it because it plays well with others. This is the only true damsel we have ever had that does not act aggressivley towards tankmates. I would put a Talbot's Damsel into the most passive reef tank without fear.100g Reef

I have a yellowtail blue damsel, and I friggin' love him! He's a little neon blue sweetie with a yellow tail, not a yellowbelly damsel, and he's really peaceful. Now and then he'll get annoyed at someone, but all he does is puff up and bat them in the face with his tail until they either swim away or flare back, in which case he panics and hides. I really want to get a few more of his kind at some point... Every member of his species that I've ever seen acts like this. He's active, colorful, hardy, and peaceful... What more can you ask of a reef fish? Oh, and he doesn't bother shrimp. He'd chase them out of his shell if they went in, but other than that he left them alone.I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.
