Damsel Compatibility

I have a 35 Gallon Fish only tank. I currently have two yellow tail damsels, one three stripe damsel, and one domino damsel. They have all been getting along great for four weeks. What types of fish would also be compatible with my damsels?

You have a very small tank, and what you have now isn't compatible. Once they get mature good luck. I would return all but the yellow tails, assuming there not male blue devils your fine. A clarkii, or percula clown would do well in that size tank.

I agree with sixline. It's funny ... but I had just about the exact same stock on my first tank (except I had two regular blue damsels). The strip and the domino did get very territorial as time went on and as they got larger. They would definitely harrass newcomers to the tank especially if the newcomers were smaller fish. I'd swap out those two for your next addition.
