Red Honey Damsel

  • Dischistodus Damselfish should be added to well established aquariums with plenty of room to swim.

  • Plenty of rock work should be provided for grazing and resting.

  • Dischistodus Damselfish may pick at small benthic crustaceans.

  • Be sure to thoroughly research each species as Dischistodus Damselfish can be very territorial and aggressive.

  • They should only be housed with larger tank mates not easily harrassed.

  • A diet of meaty and algae based foods which includes Spirulina should be provided.
