Blue Nightmare...err, Damsel

The Neon Damsel was recommended to me as a way to break in my first tank. The color can be quite striking and this animal is quite hardy. But after I established my tank, the trouble began.

It will eat just about anything from bloodworms, to flakes, to shrimp. I never had a problem with disease or stress. However, as my tank grew and the expense for more exotic animals increased, so did the aggression in the little blue terrorist. At first I noticed the fins of my larger fish having little bite marks missing. Then the more I watched, I witnessed my little Blue Damsel in several drive by attacks.

So to make it simple, as the fish store owner recommended to me, just use this fish to break in a new tank. Your other fish will thank you. If you already have one, I wouldn't recommend any expensive purchases as long as this fish is in your community.
