I used to have 4 yellowtails in the 70. Then I added an arc eye hawk.

Now there is 1 damsel left, but the arc eye is growing rapidly. 8O

my yellow tail damsel is really aggressive and try to attack my koran angel (who kill my blue ring angel last night). i think some damsel are really aggressive toward other fishes because i have about 4 blue devil damsels and they are very peaceful but my jewel dasel is like my yellow tail damsel, they are very aggressive and trying to attack the fin of my other fishes.

60 gal s/w tank - 1 adult koran angel, 1 yellow tang, , 10 blue leg hermit crab, 15 snail, , 1 tri-bar damsel, 1 chocolate star fish, 20 blue legs hermit, 20 snails, 1 cleaner shrimp, 1 blue damsel, 1 citron goby, and 1 dragon goby

Sounds like everyone has had "that one damsel" that goes evil...
Don't dream it, be it.

I have 2 Yellow Tails, a Bluefin (AKA: Royal Damselfish), and a 4 Stripe (Humbug).
They are all very friendly with their tank mates and each other.
Lucky me I guess.

I have a three stripe damsel and a yellow tail damsel. Both are meek and mild as can be.

I agree with the one evil damsel for everyone theory.

I haven't (knock on wood) had a damsel go evil on me yet but there have been a few other fish in both fresh and saltwater that have gone on killing sprees in my tanks over the years. Currently I have a scopus tang that went evil - didn't kill anyone, just started beating the snot out of every other fish in the tank. He now lives with a green spotted puffer and they seem to have an understanding.
