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.
