The Lemon Damsel is an eye-catching yellow colour adding a flash of dramatic colour for a lively addition that complements your aquarium.
The hardy and easy-to-care-for Lemon Damsel is a great choice for new and experienced aquarists. This Indo-Pacific native is found among coral-rich areas of sheltered coastal reefs. The Lemon Damsel will generally ignore other fish, invertebrates or corals. However, as the fish matures, it may demonstrate territorial behavior towards its own kind or similar-sized fish. An aquarium with plenty of live rock with multiple hiding places helps break up territories and decrease potential aggression. Spawning Lemon Damsel are known to lay egg masses on coral skeletons or dead portions of Acropora corals. An industrious pair may clear off portions from live corals if an alternate spawning material is not provided.
The diet of the Lemon Damsel should be varied and consist of meaty items, herbivore flakes, and frozen preparations. foods may also help to preserve body colouration.
