The 4-Stripe Damselfish, also known as Blacktail
Dascyllus, Blacktail Damselfish, or Blacktail Humbug, is a popular fish. Three
alternating black and white vertical bands make up the body coloration with a
fourth black band ending at the tail.

A 30 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of hiding
places is suitable. Due to its aggressive behavior as an adult, it will do well
in a community tank with other aggressive fish. It will not harm invertebrates
or disturb the tank setting.


It will need a diet variety of meaty items, herbivore
preparations, and flaked foods.
