The Yellow Damselfish, also known as the Golden Damselfish, has lemon yellow coloring highlighted by upper and lower racing stripes, sometimes of neon blue. As it matures, the colors will fade and it will become more aggressive.

A 30 gallon or larger aquarium with adequate hiding places provides a good environment for this fish. It will not disrupt a reef tank or demolish invertebrates. The Yellow Damselfish is a hardy fish that can handle a wide range of tank conditions, making it a great choice for the beginning hobbyist.

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

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

I love this fish! He is the BOSS of the tank. Lots of personality! Eats brine shrimp right out of the syringe. A must have.
