The Domino Damsel is indigenous to the Indo-Pacific region. With the presence of three white spots, it is also named as three spot Dascyllus. As these fishes get mature they become more aggressive to other tank inhabitants. Also, the Domino Damsel are very hardy and can tolerate extreme conditions which might kill other inhabitants. Therefore, the Domino Damsel is often used to ??cycle?? new tanks. The Domino Damsel is almost black with three white spots, out of which one is on each side of the middle back and one is on top just before the dorsal fin. It is a striking fish and makes a great addition to any reef tank. Being aggressive in nature, it is advisable to keep the Domino Damsel singly and not in pairs. Also, it should be introduced as a last fish to ignore its territorial nature. The Domino Damsel is reef safe and will not harm any corals. They are omnivore in nature and mainly feed on chopped shrimp as well as flake food and plant matter such as spirulina and algae. The Domino Damsel fishes are also grazer and love to graze over the rocks, so it is recommended to keep live rocks in the aquarium with moderate lighting and flow. They should never be kept with few animals such as sharks, rays, large species damselfish, moray eels and groupers. Instead the Domino Damsel fishes are very safe to keep with dwarf angelfish, puffers, and cardinalfish. There is no distinct characteristic that differentiates male from female Domino Damsel fishes. The Domino Damsel fish surely makes the aquarium attractive with its beautiful body and draws attention to your reef tank.

The Domino Damsel is a jet black damsel with white spots on its body. They are very easy to care and while they can be kept in groups it is recommended they are kept singly. They are often seen accepting an Anemone for protection.Damselfishes provide an important link both as reef forage fishes and aldo excellent beginner marine aquarium specimens. Their extensive use is well-warranted considering their diversity, beauty and tolerance of chemical and physical conditions, gregariousness when crowded and general compatibility with fishes and invertebrates. Most damselfish species accept all types of food eagerly and are very disease resistant.Damselfish are often used to break in or cycle a new aquarium. It is important to remember that even though these fish are hardy and can handle the adverse conditions of a new aquarium, they may become quite aggressive among themselves, and toward other tankmates. Most of these fish stay in small shoals in the wild when young, breaking away from the group as they grow, and eventually become solitary as adults. When dealing with several Damsels in one aquarium, plenty of rockwork and hiding places are necessary in order to keep quarrels to a minimum. The Chromis are a genus of Damsels that are schooling fish. They do well in an aquarium in groups of the same species.No significant markings or distinguishing characteristics differentiate males from females. Damselfish can be successfully spawned in an aquarium. The male Damsel is usually responsible for the care and maintenance of the eggs after the fish have spawned.They are generally compatible with: Dwarf Angelfish, Large Angelfish, Anthias, Basslets, Blennies, Boxfish, Clownfish, Goatfish, Gobies, Hawkfish, Hogfish, Parrotfish, Pseudochromis, Puffers, Tangs & Surgeons and Wrasse.Caution is required with: Anglers & Frogfish, Batfish, Butterflyfish, Cardinalfish, Damselfish, Filefish, Grunts & Sweetlips, Squirrelfish and Triggerfish.They are not compatible with: Eels, Groupers, Lionfish & Scorpionfish, Seahorses & Pipefish and Sharks & Rays.
