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.
