The Lemon Damsel is a small, bright yellow damsel with blue lines on the head and fins. Its appearance might get confused with the P.amboinensis, who has less bright color with a larger spot at the pectoral fin unlike the Lemon Damsel. It inhabits branching corals, and hides over the branches when frightened. With its stunning yellow color, the Lemon Damsel is also known as golden damselfish that adds a splash of yellow color into the aquarium. As it grows, its color fades away and become more aggressive. Generally, the Lemon Damsel prefers to be solitary and mostly found feeding on the zooplanktons present in the tank. It is compatible with Dwarf Angelfish, Large Angelfish, Anthias, Basslets, Blennies, Boxfish, Clownfish, Goatfish, Gobies, Hawkfish, Hogfish, Parrotfish, Pseudochromis, Puffers, Tangs & Surgeons and Wrasse. The Lemon Damsel thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit, with pH of 8.4 and high quality water. It should be kept in a tank with not less that 10 gallon and does well with hiding places, therefore lots of live rocks should be added in the tank. The Lemon Damsel is a hardy fish, which can tolerate a wide range of water conditions and that makes it a very good choice for a beginner aquarist. The Lemon Damsel mainly feeds on a variety of meaty foods that includes brine shrimp, Mysis shrimp and frozen herbivore preparation and flakes. It should include vitamin enriched food, which helps in maintaining the color of this beautiful damsel. The Lemon Damsel is a bit territorial, and should be added last to the community tank, so that it gets along well with other tank inhabitants. If the Lemon Damsel is introduced first, it might become territorial
