    Devil Damsel & Clownfish together “Oh my”!

    Before the Aquarium Police come after me, READ!! I have complete knowledge of these fish being cousins of each other and it’s NOT ideal to house the two species together. (insert checkmark) My tank is my tank, your tank is your tank. This is my tank, thank you. Nice, now that the Aquarium...

    Fish aggression habits.

    I got two pink smith damsels from my LFS and they were in the same tank acting all fine and friendly. The LFS just got them in that week too. Then when I put them in my tank, which are the only two fish in there, one is beating up the other. Why is this? Is it because it’s a new tank and need to...

    Peaceful Damsel?

    Hey everyone I was at the LFS the other day and some Talbots Damsels really caught my eye. I love their coloration! Are they like other damsels, extremely aggressive or are they a more peaceful one that can be kept in a community reef?

    ID on this damsel!!

    I recently bought a damselfish from petco under the dubious label "assorted damsel". I think it's a female because if the clear fins, and it has no yellow whatsoever. I'm thinking either a yellowtail or fijian blue devil. I need help :(

    Random fish deaths

    Here is my Fuzzy Dwarf Lionfish in quarantine: Should I put him in my Coral Display (located in the middle of the sump below my FOWLR predator tank): Or should he go in my Damsel Tank: I have never had a Lionfish, so I am not sure which option would be the best for him. Do you think the...
