3 Stripped Damsel

  • Dascyllus Damselfish should be added to well established aquariums with plenty of room to swim. Plenty of rock work should be provided for grazing and hiding.

  • Dascyllus Damselfish may pick at small benthic crustaceans.

  • Be sure to thoroughly research each species as some Dascyllus Damselfish are known to be quite territorial and aggressive.

  • Juveniles can be added in small groups but as they mature will be become more aggressive.

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

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

  • They can grow to almost 3".


We recommend a minimum aquarium size of 30 gallons or larger for this species.
