    We have two small damsels in a 55-60 gallon salt aquarium. There is a domino, the bigger of the two, and a smaller striped one. Both are active and eating, water tests are perfect. The striped one's black stripes are starting to turn grey... what the heck is happening??

    How long have they been in the tank? Striped damsels will sometimes fade their back if they are stressed.

    he is a three stripe damsel. I think you are correct about the stress... i have been reading and it says they need ample hiding places... if you read my previous posts I have been getting my fish from someone only interested in money and was never told that. So what should i give him to hide in?

    Yeah having some nooks or somewhere fish can retreat to makes them feel much more comfortable
