The young Cloudy Damsel often lives in a communal relationship with anemones. As they mature, however, they will abandon the anemone and shifts to corals. We suggest keeping a few live rocks and caves or a coral of their own, or it might end up in fighting with other damselfish species for its niche. The Cloudy Damsel is hardy, inexpensive and readily available at saltwaterfish.com. Since it is very easy to care and maintain, the Cloudy Damsel makes a very good choice for a beginner aquarists. It is mostly found in the Indo-Pacific region, and can be fed with all kinds of live, frozen and flake foods and algae. The Cloudy Damsel is aggressive in nature and hence becomes territorial as it grows older. Their aggressive nature becomes destructive sometimes. A minimum of 10 gallon aquarium is required for the Cloudy Damsel to keep. It looks great in groups when it moves in a shoaling manner. There is no distinctive feature differentiating males and females, but they have been successfully spawned in the aquarium. In this species, the males are responsible for looking after the eggs. The Cloudy Damsel is resistant to diseases and also accepts all types of food.
These fish are a great addition to my 75gal tank,they share the tank with 2 lyretail anthais, one goat fish, one Korean angel, one dragon goby, one velvet fairy wrasse. I was worried about these fish surviving the flight from Fla, to Boston I bought four and one didn't survive but it was due to its tiny size (most small fish don't survive flights )but three made it and I love them,a must have great color and attitude
