Damsels, Chromis

Damselfish and also Saltwater aquarium Chromis usually 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 Damselfish become very aggressive as 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 any 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 small groups of three or four and add new saltwater fish in small groups of 2 or 3.

Australian Tasmanian Devil Damselfish
Picture of Australian Tasmanian Devil
Identification: The Australian Tasmanian Devil Damselfishis a larger, nicer variant of Chrysiptera taupou. Australian specimens are well known for their 'extra nice' color, which is nicer than the photo shown, primarily because Australia collects big nice fish! Still, it's a small fish, around 1.5"-2". It is blue over much of its body, with a yellow tail and a yellow belly. Like most damsels, it is an aggressive little fish that is ideally suited to the aquarium. This Damselfish may bother smaller, peaceful tankmates (especially in a smaller tank). Keep only one per tank and only with other bold species such as larger pseudochromis angelfish and triggerfish. Provide with plenty of hiding places.

Starcki Damselfish
Chrysiptera starcki
Picture of Starcki Damselfish

Identification: The Starcki Damsel, also known as the Starck's Demoiselle is an excellent aquarium fish as it is great looking, easy to keep, hardy, and quite disease resistant. This species comes from the reefs of the Coral Sea and depending on its mood the blue coloring will get darker or deep blue, but the contrast between its two different colors is always quite attractive. As they mature many damselfish are noted for becoming rather aggressive and are best not kept with smaller or overly passive tank mates. This species is no exception, it is rather territorial and somewhat aggressive.
