Blue Sapphire Damsel

SKU: AO1194Categories: Saltwater Fish

The Blue Sapphire Damselfish hails from Indonesia and sports a stunning blue coloration with black-bordered fins. When under duress, this species can rapidly darken to black, making it difficult for predators to spot them. Like other members of the Chrysiptera genus, they may become aggressive toward slower-moving tank mates, necessitating ample live rock for hiding and establishing territories. This hardy species is an excellent choice for beginner aquarists and makes for a suitable companion fish in saltwater aquariums of at least 30 gallons, where they pose no threat to corals or invertebrates. However, as they age, they may grow increasingly aggressive, causing issues with the inclusion of other fish species. If keeping them with other damselfish, it is crucial to provide multiple hiding places within the live rock to mitigate territorial behavior and lessen aggression. The Blue Sapphire Damselfish’s diet should consist of high-quality flake foods, frozen meaty foods such as brine or mysis shrimp, and occasional servings of dried seaweed, which can be offered using a feeding clip.
