Three Stripe Damsel
These guys are so cute! They are a beautiful addition to our tank and they love to swim around and dart through the rocks. These fish are some of our first experience with Reefs2Go. (I say this because the other ones are in hiding!) We have a few of them together and they are so much fun to watch. One of them has staked out a hole in a certain rock and that's his spot ... or her spot. We are not disappointed with our three striped damsel fish! They are healthy and eat well.

Bullies! They can be aggressive as stated, they're VERY fast, territorial & aggressive to new fish at first, ours even bites ME - repeatedly - when I hand feed the anemone! Yet they are fun to watch, especially when a bigger fish whose had enough decides to fight back...our clown fish chases him in circles through every tunnel for several minutes at a time.
