Overview

The 2-Stripe Damselfish, also known as the Reticulate Dascyllus or Reticulated Damselfish, is a popular fish. Two dark bands encircle its shimmering silver-green body on the front half and also on the back in front of the blue-green tail.

A 30 gallon or larger aquarium is suitable with plenty of hiding places. Due to its aggressive behavior as an adult, it will do well with other aggressive fish in a community tank. It will not harm invertebrates or disturb the tank setting.

It will need a diet of meaty items, herbivore preparations, and flaked foods.

Approximate Purchase Size: 3/4" to 1-1/2"

Customer Testimonials

John Godwin Great Falls , MT
Lots of attitude for a small fish, doesn't seem to realize he is small. Darts into cover of the mushrooms when someone big comes by, but then right out again.
