Talbot's Damselfish Information The Talbot's Damsel Chrysiptera talboti is an exquisite and enjoyable species of fish you can keep. It's tiny in size, measuring just about 2/3 inches (6 cm) in length, is a vigorous swimmer, and is a fantastic eater. It's also extremely durable and often priced at a reasonable amount which makes it an excellent fish for the beginner or other saltwater fish keepers. The beautiful marine fish have such an individual look that they're difficult to distinguish from other damselfish. The bright yellow face and forehead are in contrast to the body color, which can vary from pink or pinkish-purple to darker or gray highlighted by bright yellow anal fins. They are also among those fish that are interesting due to an ocellaris or "eye spot" found at the bottom of the dorsal fin. This distinctive black mark helps to confuse predators and gives the fish protection against attack from the front.

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.
