Got 2 damsels today. I slow drip acclimated them for about an hour before I stuck them in their. They seem to be doing fine and didn't have any problems fitting in to their new tank. I got them to top off my now 6 week old cycle. My lfs man sold them for 4 a piece. I know the tank isn't large enough for full grown damsels, their only going to be in their for about 2-3 weeks to prep my tank for stocking. My lfs store will give me a full refund when I return them. I thought that was pretty nice. :P ill keep you updated on the damsels as long as I have them. Protein Skimmers gonna bbe here tommorow Woot! Please send advice this way thanks!

Sorry about the picture quality phone doesn't have the greatest camera

Nice looking dry rock. Try placing the new rock under the live rock. Does speed up seeding.
I hope u do plan to return the damsels once the tank is good to go.

Thanks for the advice ill deffinitly try that!
And of course I will return them to the LFS. When he first offered them to me I was hesitant (everything I've read has been against this) but he wanted me to see how the fish acted and behaved since I had no previous Saltwater experience. Again they seem healthy as can be and are scheduled to go home when I order my pair of clowns. Advice always appreciated good or bad.

You should only return the damsels if they are acting aggressive. Every fish has it's own personality. I've had a chromis, that are supposed to be peaceful, be the most aggressive fish in my tank.

I only have a 33-35g tank. In the long-term that wont be any where near suitable for the size of full grown damsels.

Its hard to say, depends on so many things.For less than 33 gallons I go with 3 gallons per inch. But still depends on what fish and how much swimming room u have. A big factor is you, the care and knowledge.
