Damselfish

Damselfish get to about 2 inches in the saltwater aquarium. They are considered a good starter fish for cycling or breaking in a new tank because they are hardy adapting well to changing water conditions and inexpensive if lost. Most will become very aggressive once they are an adult fish. This can be a problem if you have added them as a starter fish to stabilize your new tank and then want to add new fish. When you add your new saltwater fish to the tank you may have a territorial problem with the existing damselfish. To combat this problem, it is best to keep damselfish in multiple groups of three or four.
