Damsels are very aggressive. If you want to get more fish, get fish that can defend themselves. My damsels dont even get close to my yellow tang

damsels

I have a black and white striped damsel that when we got him he was under an inch long, in the course of about 4 months he annihalated all the fish in my tank which included 2 yellow tailed damsels, 6 green chromis, and 2 percula clowns. He did it with a vengeance too, he would rip off the tails and fins and then grind them into the sand or glass. I bought a snowflake eel today that i hope does him in....
