Damsels Only?

I am thinking about changing a 60 gallon cube to a damsel only tank. I know some have success and others don't. Does anyone have any suggestions on which ones to put in together? I can add most at once because I'll be transferring several other fish to another tank. Looking at the damsels on bluezooaquatics.com
Thanks!

yellow tailed damsels are colorful and peaceful. If you want something aggressive I advise the blue devil.

I was hoping to get a good color selection. Some blue, some yellow and then red as well. Is it too big of a risk to mix several different kinds? I wouldn't mind putting 3-4 of each one but still have 3 or so different colored ones.

I like the black and white striped damsel. They have personality and like to hide in caves and watch others swim by.

Damsels with similar color will usually fight.

So it would be a bad idea if I bought 3 black spot red, 3 black and gold, 3 yellowtail and 3 Allen's damselfish? Or something like that.

Aren't the black and white striped ones very aggressive? Even towards other damsels? Just trying to read all I can before ordering anything!
