Apparently they are ok as long as you don't have anything smaller than them otherwise they will bully it, what you planning on putting them with?

Well damsels have a tendency to be very territorial. With those other semi-aggressive tank mates, it looks fine.

My experience with damsels has been that they don't care how aggressive tank-mates are. They either end up being nasty to everyone or model citizens. Stripes or dots seem to be more aggressive than the colored ones.

In the wild they are tea cup sized and very aggressive. I'd keep an eye on him.
