The Marginated Damselfish, is also known as the Marginate Damselfish. This beautiful fish has a white body trimmed in black with yellow and light blue highlights edging the scales on each side of the body.
A 30 gallon aquarium or larger with plenty of rockwork and décor is ideal. Because it can tolerate substandard water parameters, it is a popular fish used for conditioning new aquariums. A small group of juvenile Marginated Damsels will add color and drama to most marine aquariums. Maintain this species with other semi-aggressive or aggressive fish, as they will become territorial as they mature.

The Marginated Damselfish feeds on a variety of meaty foods, herbivore preparations, and flaked foods.
