Bring a classy and robust Damselfish to the reef aquarium with the Regal Damsel. This stunningly beautiful dark aquarium fish is black-gray with a lyre tail that frames an exquisite burst of yellow. It is typically kept for long periods in small groups, provided it is given plenty of space to swim and to move about. It is a comparatively quiet fish, which can provide an impressive effect to the reef or fish-only aquarium.

The reefs they inhabit range from deep to shallow lagoons of the Indo-Pacific and South Pacific, wild specimens prefer to gather in huge shoals within branching corals such as Acropora. In the home aquarium, the Regal Demoiselle does best in similar conditions and can move through all levels of the water column. Smaller schools that are made of Regal Demoiselle add a unifying and elegant pop of elegance to nearly any reef system.

They are not very picky eaters. In aquariums they usually consume pellets and flakes however, they must also be fed frozen or fresh algae as well as fleshy food items like the mysis shrimp, plankton, and krill scallops.
