The damsel fish is one of the easiest fish to keep and thus an awesome recommendation for new marine hobbyists. They eat flake and pellet foods within hours of dropping them in the tank. These are safe for reef aquariums and stay small enough for most tanks. Provide ample amounts of decorations and live rock to allow this fish to hide and swim thru. It is difficult to differentiate between a male and female. Typically, the male is larger and will become aggressive towards the female when he is ready to mate. Like other damsels the male is responsible for the care of the eggs and will become very territorial while guarding his brood. Be careful with which tank mates you provide with this damsel because they are known to be territorial and aggressive. They have an adult size of only 3" and can be added in a group simultaneously. The Yellowtail are found in the Indo-Pacific inhabiting coral-rich areas of reefs.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
