Talking My first marine fish are in!!!!

Hey guys sorry I've been inactive lately but I have been very busy.

I'm just so excited because I just bought 3 yellowtail damsels which look AMAZING under my lights; Maybe I'm just so psyched it just clouds my vision, lol!

They are extremely active, even a half hour after acclimation! I will trade them in to the lfs when I'm ready to get more fish because I only bought damsels purely to test and see if my aquarium is adequate for other fish, but they are just so... Interesting!

Won't let me post pics, sorry.

Anyways I just wanted to ask all of you, what your first marine fish was?

Hi mate thats good the beat feeling is when your happy with your system and your fish are all happy. The thing is damsels their very hardy fish. If youve cycled your tank then add fish very very slowly. My first fish were standard clownfish and i put them in the day i set the tank up and i had them for over 3 months but traded them in for maroon pair now... Ask me how that was done lol

Yeah fish in cycling is always a risk if not to your pocket to the life of the fish.

However if the tank is cycled then adding 2 or 3 damsels shouldn't be too much of a problem. Try not to feed them too much. This will help to stabilise your system and mature your filtration.

Best of luck though seems like you're getting on ok. Good luck catching those damsels lol

Talking damsels

I have 4 damsels that came in my established tank. I kind of like them.

I like my yellow tail damsels. Mine have amazing color to them. I have had them when I first started my invert tank. I never planned or plan on getting rid of them. I'd probably get rid of my clowns before I got rid of them! Lol they are great! Yeah, a little aggressive, but can't really harm anything due to their size.

My first marine fish were a blue/yellow tail damsel and a three stripe damsel. I was sooooo excited to have fish with such bold color. It was a fun feeling. Amazing how blue they are, huh?

Makes you wonder if artists like Picasso didn't find inspiration from sea life....hint, hint Huma Huma Trigger (Aka Picasso Trigger--the trigger came first)

haha, cool guys. Seems like damsels are a pretty **** common starter fish I just added a foxface recently who is doing well. They are such attractive fish! I'm probably going to wait around 1-2 weeks until I add a dogface puffer or antennata lion: Not sure which to add first...
