I have a three striped damsel that has had his fins bit at.. I put him in a tank to himself but I was wondering is their a way to save him? He is still swimming just less and will still eat.. I love this fish I just dont know what to do. Ans will his fins grow back? (There is still fin there it didn't lose them all)
if there are other damsels present it could be territorial or just dominance ,
damsels are little demons and never can be trusted , one day you'll go out and buy a high dollar fish , just to watch it get beat up by the damsels , yes for a five dollar fish they have nice coloring but is it worth risking all your other fish ?
Sometimes it helps if you take all your fish out re arranged your Rock work create new caves and homes ect.. And introduce them all back in at the same time that way no one has an established territory.
It is a simple tank for my son it has a neon dotty, a clown fish, a red crap and some hermies, and I took the damsil out to put him in hospital tank. The tank has a couple of hiding rocks but that's about it. It's a 20 gallon tank
