I don't see fish as being problems except during breeding (some damsels will wreck house), moreso problem aqurists (you could view cichlids, tetras, wrasses, tangs, angelfish, etc. in the same light as they all tend to behave aggressively towards others). There is no such thing as peaceful aquariums, a misnomer, as everything is under a check & balance system and the smaller the tank the more likely incidents will occur. As with anything, most problems could be avoided if researched ahead of time

*try talbot damsels, they are lovely and rather passive for a damsel XD

Ohhhh...sounds interesting!!! I will certainly do that, that is, once I figure out what to do with the electric blue damsel and the blue yellow-tailed damsel(who I guess will stay all alone in the quarantine tank :-(( At least he seems "happier" now. Guess I need to try and find a place for a much bigger tank!!! Thanks!!! )

Electric blue's are moderately aggressive, moreso than yellowtail's which I find adorable. Domino, Velvet, b/w striped, and humbug damsels seem to be the worst along with Sergeant Majors (still my fave).
