The Bicolor Damsel fish is a member of the of the Pomacentridae family. It is commonly named as Caribbean Bicolor Damsel. This species is usually found in the Western Atlantic including southern Florida (USA), Bahamas, the Caribbean Sea, as well as far south as Brazil. The Bicolor Damsel can be easily identified by its unique coloration. The front part of their body features a black color while the back portion of their body is white in color. The Bicolor Damsel fish generally grows up to a size of 4 inches in length and are recommended to be kept at a minimum tank size of 30 gallons. They are very good reef tank inhabitants and must be kept maintained at a temperature level ranging between 75-82 degree F at a pH range lying between 8.0-8.4. The recommended salinity of water ranges between 1.020-1.024. It is a great starter fish for a starter marine aquarist as they need a very moderate care level. The Bicolor Damsel fish needs a tank with plenty of hiding places such as crevices or caves to take refuge or hide when stressed or frightened. The Bicolor Damsel is omnivorous in diet and usually feeds on the copepods, pelagic tuncates, and larvae in the water column above the reef. They take on protein foods like finely chopped brine shrimp that must be supplemented with algae and frozen or live foods. The female partner of the Bicolor Damsel lays egg, while the male partner guards the eggs until they are hatched. At this time, the male partner often becomes aggressive. This species are best when kept at a shoal of 3 or more.
