I agree with most of the comments about damsels. my lfs told me they were the best fish to have to start the tank along with a pair of clowns. after about 3 month the damsel(Bowie) tortured the clowns to the point they died. he would only allow them 1 small corner of the tank and as soon as they swam out the corner he would chase them round torturing them untill they went back into the corner. i introduced other fish (dartfish, algae bleeny) and he tortured them. i had to take all of the rock and corals i had in to catch him and i had a job to take him back to the lfs.

i agree don't buy a yellow tailed blue damsel they are evil
