I don't think she knew what she was talking about because they look identical to the damsels I've seen before. Man I hate it when people with little saltwater knowledge sell fish. I don't know much and it is misleading to me for them just to get a sale.

That can be a problem with some lfs. They are in the business to sell, and most people with little knowledge fall into their trap all the time and end up getting out of the hobby. Is there another lfs you can shop at in your area?

I have 2 yellow tail damsels in my tank, and one has always looked somewhat purple. I just skimmed through this thread, so someone might have said this already, but I think they might just be damsels.

Its amazing what LFS's will call animals. I have yet to see one call a scooter blenny a dragonet.
Big difference between a blenny and a dragonet.

All they really have to do is read some of the books they have on their shelves. It's even free to read.
