beginner fish advice

I have an 80 gal. homemade tank that is set up for saltwater. I plan to only have fish only until I get more experienced with saltwater systems. I currently have a Domino Damsel, and a Blue Chromsis Damsel in the tank. The Domino is extremely agressive, and has killed everthing but the other fish that swims faster. If I get rid of the Domino will the Chromsis Damsel take over and be just as mean to any newcomers.

Domino's are very aggressive and should be in a tank where the other fish can hold their own. If in fact you do have a blue chromis, they are similar to the green chromis in nature, in that they are pretty docile. They are schooling fish and need multiples to be happy.

I would get rid of the Domino if you want to keep any of the fish happy.. They will be pestered to death..

The domino is one very mean fish.
