yellow damsel

ok i have this damsel in my take that is really starting to tick me off
he roams around the tank goes to the bottom at the sand and flicks his cute little tail around causing a little sand storm which can't possibly be good. so i think this might be a territorial problem maybe. i have 1 stripped damsel and 2 blue damsels. any thoughts

My damsels do this too. For mine it is totally territorial.
You know you are a true fish-o-holic if you can field strip any powerhead on the market.

I have this ONE Yellow tail Damsel who also acts like that and he is mean, he think his the leader and I have bigger fish then him which don’t scare him. One thing I have read from a post was not to use damsel to start up a SW tank because you would never get them out. I wish I had read that because starting it up. Man is that so TRUE. With my 92gal & 90lb of rock it was hell trying to get them out that we just gave up, so they are still swimming around.
