I know these fish are generally regarded as monsters...

But I seen him today at 3.49 at the petco I work at.

He is absolutely awesome. Very vibrantly colored fish, extremely active, and just all around a very personable fish.

Now, I haven't seen a completely blue damsel, not to mention we keep them in one tank labeled as "assorted damsels." I know they're domino damsels, yellowtail damsels, etc...

Is this possibly a blue devil?

Also, he is currently inhabiting a 10g nano reef, which houses..

x1 turbo snail
x1 peppermint shrimp
x1 Blue Devil
x4 Astrea snails
x3 Blue Leg Hermit Crabs.

I'd love a clownfish, they're simply awesome to watch at work, always dancing around and what not, but I dunno if it's good with a damsel. Would a six-line wrasse work?

Forgive me, I'm still learning the ropes in the saltwater department, both at home and at work!

its a blue damsel
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Blue Damselfish

Clownfish technically are damsels. My tomato actually bullies the damsels (not to mention everything else in the tank as well as attacks my arm when I have to put it in there). I will let someone else chime in on a six-line. but I will say that 3-4 fish (that will get a few inches long and can be messy eaters) in a 10 gal is possibly pushing it. but I would take someone who does nanos opinion.

I'm not sure if I'd advise getting another fish for your 10gal, but it comes to stocking multiple fish I would have recommended adding the blue devil damsel last as they're generally territorial.

That's what I have always known as a "Blue Damsel". I haven't kept up w/SW aquaria for years, but those Blue Damsels use to be sold as "cycle fish"- fish to cycle your tank with because they are so hardy (or so they were billed). I had quite a few friends that got their start with those in their tanks before moving on to kill many an anemone (long story).
