78F or so. Damsels can be mean little buggers. And nigh on impossible to catch.

The environments where we collect these corals and fish range from about 76 to 85. I would keep it somewhere in the middle. the important thing is to keep the temp stable.

Chromis are not nearly as aggressive. Some damsels are worse than others, but overall, I keep them out of my tanks. Learned that lesson long ago. They are tough to get out once they are in and causing trouble.

I know my blue yellow tail damsel was mean to new little fish, haven't got a new fish for over an year now, he haven't bugged anyone? He chills with my little purple doty back? Very weird!! Why do they have such a bad rep?
My blue-green chromis,,,, beauties, just peace
