The Blue Sapphire Damselfish originates from Indonesia and has brilliant blue coloration with black-outlined fins. The species is capable of turning entirely black when it is stressed, which makes them able to avoid predators. As with many damselfish species in the Chrysiptera genus, it may be aggressive toward slower-moving tank friends. Be sure that the tank has ample live rocks to defend and areas for hiding.

The blue Sapphire Damselfish is tough and is an excellent fish for novices. They are also a great companion fish to an aquarium with a saltwater capacity of more than 30 gallons. They’re also good with corals and other invertebrates. As the fish grows older, it could become aggressive and cause problems with other fish. If it is kept with other damselfish, make sure you provide ample live rocks and several hiding places to reduce aggression.

Blue Sapphire Damselfish’s food must comprise of high-quality flake food and frozen meaty items like mysis or brine shrimp, and sometimes dried seaweed that is offered in a clip.
