I have a 50 gallon breeder with 2 clown fish a Green Chromis and a fire fish. I was looking on the Divers Den page and saw they were offering the trio of Traceys Damselfish and it got me thinking to the first fish I ever had, a Yellow Tail Damsel.

Would a group of 3 - 5 yellow tail damsels work out in my tank or would this be a disaster. My tank will be all SPS and I think it would be interesting to have them darting in and out of the coral branches.

Anything under a 180 I wouldn't chance it.

Possibly 1 damsel would work.

also think about the temparment of your other fish. A firefish and green chromis are both peaceful so they may be harrassed by a more aggressive fish.

A group of 3 kupang/azure damsels can work. They are similarly colored to yellowtails, but a little more peaceful. Having 3 will keep them occupied with each other rather than the other tankmates.
