I have had a yellow tail damsel in my tank for 7 months now and he has never shown any aggression towards my other fish. He even plays around with one of my clowns.

I was told time and time again to rid of my blue devil damsel before I put in my black ocellaris. I didn't and still he's been no trouble to anyone. In fact, the clownfish is the real jerk. He won't attack other fish but I can't stick my hand in there without suffering an immediate full frontal assault. That's not to say I discredit the advice I received, but weird things like this happen and I don't think you should get rid of a fish you like just because there is the potential that it will be aggressive.

IME...yellow tails are less aggressive than other kinds of damsals. I had some of those 3 stripe damsals, and they were very aggressive. THey would attack my hand always. They eventually killed off the yellowtails too.

Here is the king of damsels. This 4 stipe is almost 4 inches long. The only reason he is still there because he`s not that aggressive.
