Domino 6", blue velvet 6", just to name a couple. Depending on where you look them up the numbers vary. Even if they all only hit 3" that is way too many fish that are way too aggressive in way too small of a tank.

my goby was my main concern. mostly because of the reason mentioned, they will be occupying the same area.

Yea if you only have one area of rockwork, that is a good point. I overlooked that.

I would still consider re-homing the damsels. There is a good chance as they get larger they will start to kill each other.

You didn't say some species, though, you said most. A few species reaching 6" is a little different than most Damsels reaching 8"+.

That's ok. I learned something new out of it. Didn't know there were any damsels that got that large. Seems like everyone was half right. : )

i plan to X the damsels all together and get just 2 lionfish and then keep the eel but if the eel is gonna play a part in harassing the goby i wont. i like the goby he is pretty cool. and i redid my rock. not alot but took one and moved it and bought some mushrooms and zoanthid.

You MAY be able to do yellowtail damsels,but there still have a pretty bold attiude,but avoid Sergeant Major Damsels,3 striped and Domino Damsels especially!
