    The Saphire Damsels are supposed to be the more peaceful of the Damsels. These two mostly leave the other fish alone but do beat each other up periodically. Ive had to pull one or the other and place in an acclimation container to recover for a week or two more than once. They divide the tank and rarely venture into the others territory but when one does rome they duke it out.

    I was told they do better in group of 3. He always had luck with 3 so it is ones opinion. He said sometimes there is a little aggression. For the color I think it will be worth to try.

    Also every time I see a new batch the group stay close. He keeps them for awhile in frag tanks then sells them

    That's how I keep mine in a group of 3. They never stray far from each other

    I hadnt heard that but I can see it working out better. Doubt Id get away with adding another this point. I dont see these two becoming fast friends!

    I can see trying to add a third may not work out. My plan was to get 3 that he has and hope they stay friends. Sometimes fish are hit and miss I guess

    Mexican Turbo’s rocking out! 10 minutes in and the cleanups well underway. Added 5. Will pull a couple after a few daysband relocate to the Biocube. 2nd stage of uglies coming on a bit in both tanks.

    I have 3 azures. They stay focused on each other and stay near the rocks. Love the color and movement.

    Andrew's blue velvet has a very sweet attitude. He swims with the clowns, however, I'm pretty sure it's because the watchman is the tank Alpha.

    Not all Rainbows and Unicorns today. We had some fish envy after seeing NY_Cavemans clown. A pair pooped up on DD that I scooped up.

    1BB155CC-E663-4B2C-B6D2-D9A458FFECED.png

    They arrived well enough. Acclimated them together for 45 min and plopped em in the 40B. The female passed within 30 minutes but the Male is fine aside from losing his mate of course. Kind of strange to be honest. Not sure what happened. Wasnt a salinity or temp swing. Not a new tank so not ammonia. Was Bizarre as far as fish losses Ive experienced before.
