The ORA® Captive-Bred Lemon Damselfish can also be referred to also as Golden Damselfish, Molucca Damsel, Molucca Demoiselle. The bright yellow Damselfish could show blue lines across its fins and head. As the fish matures, the bright yellow coloration starts to dim slightly, and it is less timid in the home aquarium.

The ORA® Captive-Bred Lemon Damselfish has a unique benefit over species that are wild harvested. Captive-Bred Damselfish can be very tough and are more accustomed to the conditions in home aquariums. This makes them an excellent choice for beginners and experienced aquarists.

This fish of the Pomacentridae family likes to hide in multiple areas with tranquil tankmates. Although the majority of Damselfish are tolerant of other invertebrates, fish, or corals, a few may be territorial to their own kind or similar sized fish. It is believed that the Lemon Damsel is best kept in small groups of odd-numbered fish in appropriate-sized systems.

The Lemon Damsel requires a 30-gallon or larger tank with a variety of places to hide.

The diet should comprise various meaty foods, herbivore dishes, and flaked food items.

ORA® Captive-Bred Lemon Damselfish Information

The tough, gentle-mannered Damselfish is an ideal option for almost every reef aquarium. While it doesn’t have the loud nature of other Damsel species. These fish are comfortable with other fish in a variety of situations. Being quite small, they max out at only 3 inches which makes them a great option even in smaller tanks. If you begin with two small individuals, they will probably be a couple. However, they are able to remain in any size group, if the aquarium is big enough. They have been successfully kept in groups with Yellowtail Blue Damsels, Sapphire Damsels as well as many other Clownfish species. The species swims through crevices looking for food items. Their diet should consist of crustacean meat/meal as well as algae meals to keep their bright yellow coloring. Many of the available krill-based diets that are pelleted, gel-based, flake foods, freeze-dried Artemia, as well as Mysis shrimp are easily accepted.

This ORA Lemon Damsel is a suitable choice to use as a “starter aquarium fish”.
