Any pics of the tank? Whats the tank stock like? Reef or fowlr?

My tank is on the link below but it was taken 6 months ago. I just added the damsels a month ago. Yellow tang and blue tang are peaceful together with flame angel and the rests.

I've seen a number of "colonies" of damsels while diving. They seem to get along in groups in the wild

. If it works everyone will pick on everyone a little bit.

I'd say if the bio load isn't too great to add them all at once or in schools like all the three stripes at once and then all the blue devils etc at once so that the established fish forget who to be mad at

If it does not work you are only out $40

My blue devil was first and picking on dotted when introduced. After adding the four 3-striped damsels the blue devil is now being picked by the bigger one and looks they are all just playing around.

I had a large tank with all Damsels and Chromis-my only problem ever was the yellow tails. It was a nice active tank.
