Reef Aquarium Compatibility





In the wild, Sunface Damselfish may be found in small
groups amongst coral rich areas of seaward reef slopes and deep lagoons,
feeding mainly on zooplankton low down in the water column. Although these
pretty fish are considered much less aggressive than many of the damselfish
species, their assertiveness often increases with age and maturity. It is
therefore advisable to keep either a single specimen, a known male-female pair,
or a large sized odd-numbered shoal (9+) introduced simultaneously as juveniles
into a spacious tank with plenty of hiding places amongst the rockwork. Smaller
groups are often known to suffer fatalities. Choose tankmates with care,
avoiding any really docile species such as cardinalfish and firefish. May also
be seen on sale as Talbot's Demoiselle.




Offer a varied diet consisting of small frozen foods such
as Spirulina-enriched brineshrimp, Mysis shrimp and finely chopped krill, plus
marine flake food and herbivore rations. Feed small amounts 3 times per day.




This species has not
been bred in the home aquarium, but they are known to form distinct pairs in
the wild when spawning. Male damselfish typically establish a territory and
prepare surfaces of rubble or coral for females to deposit their adhesive,
demersal eggs. Once the eggs are laid the male will quickly fertilize them and
aggressively defend them from any intruders. He will also aerate the eggs until
they hatch
