Livestock arrives in and out of stock very regularly, depending upon availability of the item from the source. The more rare and expensive items are often difficult to hold in stock, and can take time to source, so we generally require a deposit to locate and purchase the extremely rare items
The Blue Fin Damsel is as a juvenile, it is very attractive, with a grey body highlighted by bright yellow dorsally and blue pectoral fins. As the fish matures, it becomes uniformly black.
In the wild, the Blue Fin Damsel is usually solitary and often associated with soft corals on which it feeds. In the aquarium, the juvenile is generally peaceful but becomes quite aggressive as it matures. It should only be kept with other large aggressive species. Only one Blue Fin Damsel should be kept per aquarium, unless it is very large. It may be a threat to shrimp, and may nip at soft corals.
The Blue Fin Damsel accepts most food including flake and frozen preparations.
