Damsels

Hailing from the Family Pomacentridae, Damsels are another popular category of fish aquarists prefer for their reef tanks. Fresh Marine brings to you a wide collection of some very interesting species of Damsels. Prior to skimming through the available varieties, lets look into some fundamental features of Damsels.

Compatibility. Damsels are Aggressive towards the other tank mates. Owing to the territorial disposition in some species, they may be aggressive towards their own types.
  • Habit & Habitat. Damsels exist in the Tropical Waters of Seas & Oceans, on Coral Reefs, in the Indo-Pacific region and Atlantic Oceans. They exist in small groups or pair when young, to eventually settle down independently. Damsels are biological stabilizers and are often employed to set up a new aquarium or cycle.
  • Morphology. Damsels measure as much as over 14” in wilds, while captivity allows them to grow up to 2”-3” only. Damsels are hardy creatures. Nostrils are found on each side of the short sized head and the tail is usually forked.
  • Ideal Marine Aquarium Environment. Damsels grow well in an aquarium with a temperature range of 72-78°F; the Specific Gravity of 1.020-1.025; and the pH level of water within 8.1-8.4. A minimum of 30 Gallons capacity tank is required per Damsels. To host Damsels, you should have a Reef type Marine Aquarium with ample Live Rocks, Corals, & Caves for hiding.
  • Aquarium Feeding. Damsels are Omnivorous and feed upon Plankton, Worms, other Crustaceans, Sea Weeds, and Algae.
  • Aquarium Breeding. Damsels have no morphological differences between the two genders and can breed successfully in captivity. The male Damsels look after the eggs post spawning.
  • Care. Damsels are easy to maintain and therefore, even the beginners can opt for it.
