The Rolland’s Damselfish is often referred to by The Black Cap Damselfish, and are found in the South Pacific. They’re beautiful fish with colors of black, white, and yellow and are quite friendly for a damselfish. They can provide color and excitement to any saltwater aquarium and reef fish tank.

A 30 gallon tank or more with lots of rocks and decorations is the ideal choice. Since it is able to tolerate water conditions that aren’t ideal it is a very popular fish with novice hobbyists. A small number of young Black Cap Damsels can add drama and color to many marine aquariums. It is important to keep this species alongside other semi-aggressive fish as they could become territorial once they get older. In larger reef aquariums it is not usually an issue when there are plenty of hiding spots offered.

Rolland’s Damselfish feeds on a wide variety of meaty food items, including brine shrimp or frozen mysis in preparations for herbivores, as well as flaked food items.
