The tiger cowerie will need to be watched around soft corals, the coral banded shrimp should be fine in a reef.

Wow. Can't beleive you are a reef/fish/aquarium person and you can stil lsay somethign liek flush the damsels.... That is crazy talk. If a fish ever becomes and issue it should be returned to the store, give away or sold but not killed jsut because. I guess if nobody was willign to take a fish from you and it was destroying your tank and killign all the other inhabitants then maybe I could possiably see destroying it. But use common sense.

I have only a small 10gallon reef tank with several pieces of coral. I knew the tank was not good for keeping fish and my interest was in coral anyway. But I wanted somethng that woudl creat movment and be catchy to the eye. So i added a 4 strip damsel. I love the little guy. He is an aggressive fish but I know not to add any other fish to the tank. He is a scardy cat when I am near the tank and he hides. But when you are not nearby he is out swimming and looking for food.

So basically what I am sayign is that damsels are cool fish. Basicall all fish are cool. And when you look at saltwater all of the fish are jsut incrediable. So don't put the damsel down.

If you need to destroy a fish, do so in a humane way
Isn't that why God invented cats?

How are damsels as opposed to pseudochromis? I tried two of those in my tank and they were a handful to say the least. I had to take my tank apart completely to catch them and get them out of there, they were a complete nightmare to deal with.
