I had a blue damsel that almost killed a trigger that was twice its size. The trigger dug a nice hole the my rock and just stayed there. I eventually took the trigger back and got a couple clowns.

I had a blue devil and he lived up to his name. He was a mean ol' cuss. I have a 4-stripe humbug - he is fairly aggressive. My yellow damsel is a sweetie, but will stick up for himself.

I've heard that the dominoes are the worst.

i know of one true reef safe damsel...its called a talbots damsel...they are a little more expensive than most damsels...mine was 8 dollars but hes awesome...kind of like the blennies that find a rock crevice...never seen one of them even nip at something...completely safe yet fairly unheard of...i would recommend one for smaller reef keepers looking for a fish with character.

I just put a domino damsel in my 38 gallon. I don't plan on keeping him. I just had to get something in that tank for now. Soon as I get the 10 gallon finished I am going to work on the 38 gallon.

I thought the domino was going to die. He went absolutely insane inside the bag while I was acclimating him. He started floating on his side taking huge breaths. So I dumped him in. He just floated around. I left for a few hours and came back and hes doing great.

He is quite a bit more skidish than my clown though.

My yellow-tail tends to attack my hand anytime it is in the water. If I get too close to the outside of the glass he will face me and have a staring contest. I’m weary of what his reactions will be when new fish are introduced to my tank

My blue and yellow one hides in the lr and never comes out... Scared of everything. My clowns don`t bother anyone...

I`ve found with a lot of species and animals is that if you get them young and introduce them into the same enviroment together they will grow up with each other and not have any problems.

My cichlid tank is a perfect example. Overstocked but the fish were all bought as babies and respect each others space. If I add anything though they kill it! I have a friend with Pirahnanas that are full grown and school with the neon tetras that they were raised with. Won`t eat them but will eat anything else.
