The Golden Domino Damselfish, also known as the Yellow Domino Damselfish, Threespot or Yellow Dascyllus. This species is so named due to the three white spots on its yellow and black body. This variation of the standard Domino Damsel is highly sought after for its unique coloration. As juveniles this fish will look quite close to the standard Domino Damsel. As the fish matures the gold tinting will begin to appear.

A 30 gallon aquarium or larger with plenty of live rock and décor is ideal. Because it can tolerate substandard water parameters, it is a popular fish among beginning hobbyists. A small group of juvenile Golden Domino Damselfish will add color and drama to most marine aquariums. Maintain this species with other semi-aggressive or aggressive fish, as they will become territorial as they mature.

The Golden Domino Damselfish feeds on a variety of meaty foods, herbivore preparations, and flaked foods.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: Less than 1"; Medium: 1" to 2"; Large: 2" to 2-3/4"; XLarge: 2-3/4" to 3-1/2"

Customer Testimonials

Kristy J. Reston , VA
This is a gorgeous fish, with a very feisty personality. I love his spunk; he clearly thinks he is much larger than he is! But, we had to move him to our 72g aggressive tank with a Marine Betta, Picasso Trigger, and Flame Hawkfish, as he was relentless with more docile fish in our smaller tank. So in this case, Aggressive means Aggressive! We have also owned a regular Domino but he was no comparision to this "all-attitude" fish. Even prettier than the picture; the fish we received from LiveAquaria has beautiful yellow and black fins and tail. Well worth the trouble!
