Description

Blue Damsel is typically blue, occasionally with an orange tail. Chrysiptera cyanea is a hardy member of a saltwater aquarium. Because of this and its usually low price it is often recommended as a way for novice marine aquarium keepers to gain experience in the hobby.

 

Food

Omnivorous, the damsel fish will accept any given food, flakes, pellet and frozen food.

 

Breeding

Some of the damselfish have been bred in captivity.

 

Compatible with

Use caution when selecting tank mates. Avoid keeping them with other damsels but if you do, introduce at the same time to limit territorial aggression. May harass other tank mates that come into their territory. Damsels may also be seen as a food source for larger fish, like Lionfish and Groupers, so it is not recommended to keep these together.

 

Note

Females have a black spot on their dorsal fin.
