DOMINO DAMSEL - small 2 - 3 inches

Stegastes partitus damselfish, also called demoiselle, any of about 250 species of small, primarily tropical marine fishes of the family Pomacentridae (order Perciformes) found in the Atlantic and Indo-Pacific oceans. Damselfishes are deep-bodied and usually have forked tails. They resemble the related cichlids and, like them, have a single nostril on each side of the head and have interrupted lateral lines. Damselfishes have two anal spines. Many species are brilliantly coloured, often in shades of red, orange, yellow, or blue; most do not exceed a length of about 6 inches.

Damselfishes are lively and quick, and are usually strongly territorial and aggressive. Some feed mainly on plant matter or small animals suspended in the water; others are omnivorous. Most damselfishes live along reefs, but certain species, the anemone fishes, are noted for living among the stinging tentacles of sea anemones.

Dascyllus trimaculatus

Common Names: 3-Spot Domino Damselfish, also known as the Three Spot Damselfish, Threespot Dascyllus or Domino Damselfish

Description:  The Domino Damsel looks just like a domino; they have a black body with three white spots.  They have a distinct white spot on the forehead and on the upper body. As the fish age the white spots will fade.  The Domino Damsel is one of the easiest fish to keep and care for.  They can grow up to three inches. The Domino Damsel can be found in the Western Pacific and the Indo-West Pacific from eastern Africa and the Red Sea to the islands of Oceania.

Recommended Tank Size:  A minimum of 30 gallons or larger is required to house the Domino Damsel and should be kept in groups.  The recommended water temperature should be 72-78° F.   The tank should also have plenty of live rock.

Food and Diet: The Domino Damsel feeds on a variety of meaty foods, herbivore preparations, and flaked foods.  The Domino Damsel will eat all kinds of live, frozen, and flake foods and algae. It is best to feed small amounts several times a day. In a reef situation they don't really need to be fed very often at all.

Level of Care: Easy

Reef Compatibility: Reef Safe
