Damsel horror stories

Do you have a damsel horror story? I'm new to this sw stuff and I have recently been hearing all kinds of horror stories. I put 2 blue yellow tail and 2 three stripe. Originally I was going to put in a lion fish so didn't plan on them being around long but went in another direction. So I guess I have to take them out a 180 which should be fun 😞

Both was settled in nicely for ages then 1 turned into a devil fish

I had a variety of six in an old tank. One of the Domino damsels decided it did not like the others and one by one, started picking them off. It left the larger fish alone, only chasing them away from its "space", but when all the other damsels were gone, I decided to catch him and return to my LFS. Didn't want to risk him going after the others.

Have fun. I can't imagine trying to catch them in a 180 with rock.

Those are one kind of fish I wish I never would have out in my tank! They are the worst.

I have a 26 bowed I took 2 yellow tail damsals out of and put in my 20L, had to take all 30 lbs of LR out they hid in even the smallest pieces or under them. They ended picking on my six line so I moved them back luckly I only have 2 big pieces in there
