ORA® Captive-Bred Azure Damselfish



The ORA® Captive-Bred Azure Damselfish also called the Half-blue Damselfish is a two-tone darting marine fish. The body's front part is bright blue. The posterior area, the anal fin, and the tail have yellow. There is a variation of species with regards to the proportion of the yellow visible on its body. (Some refer to C. parasema to be the Azure Damselfish, but in the aquarium hobby it is known as the Azure Damselfish and is thought to be this species, C. hemicyanea.) A 30 gallon or bigger saltwater aquarium with plenty of decor and rockwork is the ideal choice. Since it can withstand conditions that are not ideal for water it is a very popular fish with novice hobbyists. A small number of Azure Damsels can bring color and excitement to the majority of marine aquariums. Keep this species in the company of other semi-aggressive fish as they could become territorial once they get older. In larger reef aquariums it's not an issue if enough hiding areas are available. It is recommended that the ORA® Captain-Bred Azure Damselfish diet should comprise of top quality flake food, frozen meaty food items like mysis or brine shrimp, and sometimes dried seaweed served in a feeding clip. Estimated Purchase Size: 1/2" - 3/4"

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
