The Blue Sapphire Damselfish is a perfect choice for saltwater aquariums of 30 gallons or more, and is both hardy and suitable for beginner aquarists. They can be kept with corals and invertebrates without any issue, but when kept with other damselfish it is important to provide plenty of live rock with hiding places to break up potential territories and reduce aggression. Adding multiple fish of the same species to the same tank can cause aggressive behaviour, so it is important to consider this carefully when adding other fish to the aquarium.

The Blue Sapphire Damselfish is a hardy fish that will thrive in home aquariums when provided with the proper care. Its diet should consist of quality flake foods, frozen meaty foods such as brine or mysis shrimp and occasionally dried seaweed offered on a feeding clip. Additionally, these fish should be fed up to twice a day in small amounts. This will ensure that they receive the nutrients they need and will prevent over-eating. Overall, with the right care and nutrition, the Blue Sapphire Damselfish can make a vibrant and interesting addition to any tank.

The approximate purchase size for this product is 3/4″ to 1-1/2″.
