It's better to have more than 3 for each like 5 or 7 but limit the variety. They are school fish and it's nice to watch them swim together; However, they have tendency to bully the smallest one.

This is what I am reading but the one I have is very shy and is usually picked on. My yellow tail damsel is the terror of the tank.

All fish have different personalities so some normally peaceful damsels may also be aggressive

Interesting topic! Gary Parr from the Reef Threads podcast is currently in the process of breaking down his 65g mixed reef and changing it over to a damsel only soft coral tank. He spoke at length about research he has been doing in a few of the podcasts and episode 121 he speaks about a successful damsel only tank he came across. I'd check it out if you are interested in this type of tank.
