Mixing damsels, and what stocking options later on

Will a Yellow Damsel and a Jewel Damsel be ok in a 60g?

I just upgraded to a 60g with a 40g sump/refuge so my plan has changed a bit.

If the two damsels are going to be ok together, what other semi-aggr (or community) fish will be able to be held with them.

Damsels are generally aggressive to any fish. Two damsels are ok together in a 60G since 60G has enuf space for them so they wouldn't see each other all day long. I don't think you should add small community fish in there with them or the damsels will beat them up. Either semi-aggr, agrr. and large community fish will be ok. HTH

So I can mix semi-aggr with other semi-aggr safely?

Ive read that Anthias are a deepwater fish? This would probably be the reason I stop going to the LFS as they have 3 in a heavily lit 200g reef.

Do you have any suggestions as what else to add?

I have 5 damsels. I added thenm all at once. The blue devil is very aggressive. My 2 three stripped ones are next in line for aggressivness. My 2 yellow tails are pretty peaceful, until feeding time. I added a clown and none of them bothered him, I added a fire shrimp and the 3 stripes kept eating his antennas. I added a royal gramma and only one 3 stripe and the blue devil went after it and stressed the poor thing to death....sigh. It might be easier if you had a wish list and asked if they would be oky w/your damsels....

i have two yellow tail blue damsels in a 30 gal. after about two months together one started to beat on the other. I put the bully in a floating breeding trap for a few days. he did end up jumping out but since then peace has been made.

I wouldnt add a typical damsel to any fish tank imo. clowns and chromis are ok, however I have noticed that my 2 percs love to pick on my 3 green chromis. Damsels are little devils i tell ya.
