Overview

The Talbot's Damselfish, also known as Talbot's Demoiselle, has an attractive canary yellow head and a bright blue body. They are a very active species that maintains a small size in the aquarium, but can become territorial as it ages.

It is considered semi-aggressive and should be housed in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium. It will need adequate hiding places to develop territories and to avoid other aggressive tank mates.

The diet should include a variety of meaty foods, herbivore preparations, and flaked foods.

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

Customer Testimonials

Jim H Yakima , WA
We have had a pair of these for eight months! They are hardy, active, and beautiful additions to the tank, but are not friendly to unprotected crustaceans (killed a peppermint shrimp, and they harass hermits). They don't bother the corals, though.
