With its vibrant yellow body and long, flowing finnage, the Canary Deep Water Damsel is an ideal fish for any saltwater or reef aquarium. It is a hardy species and adapts quickly to the aquarium environment, making it suitable for both novice and experienced aquarists. This species is generally found in the Cook Islands, at depths of over 150 feet, and is rarely seen in the aquarium trade. Despite this, they are abundant in their natural habitat and are an excellent choice for your tank. Furthermore, their mild temperament makes them an excellent addition to any tank.
Canary Damsels are a hardy species of fish that can thrive in many types of environments. They require an aquarium of at least 50 gallons with plenty of rockwork and decorations to hide in. A smaller aquarium should only be used to keep them with other similarly mannered fish, while a larger tank of 4 feet or longer can accommodate them with passive fish provided adequate hiding spots are available. To ensure their health, these habitats should be regularly cleaned and maintained. Furthermore, providing a varied diet and regular water changes will further ensure their success in any aquarium.
The Canary damsels diet should consist of a wide variety of high quality, vitamin enriched frozen brine shrimp, bloodworms, and glassworms, as well as flake or pellet foods for marine fish.
