Pacific Jewel Damsel (Plectroglyphidodon lacrymatus) Care
The Pacific Jewel Damsel, Plectroglyphidodon lacrymatus, is also known as the Whitespot Devil and the Jewel Damsel. These fish come from the Indo-Pacific region. Juveniles have a dark blue body with bright blue spots. As they mature into adults, the color changes to a blue-brown color, the tail turns yellow, and the eyes become yellow.
Although damselfish are colorful, hardy, reef safe, and affordable, these little fish can be very feisty and overly aggressive towards their tankmates. They will do best housed with large angelfish, tangs, triggers, and dottybacks.
Damselfish are omnivores and require a diet rich in both meaty and plant foods, such as mysis and brine shrimp, marine algae, and flake food.
The Pacific Jewel Damselfish can grow to be about 4″ and can be housed in aquariums as small as 30 gallons with plenty of live rock. These cute little fish are territorial and once acclimated to an aquarium, they consider the entire tank to be “their” territory.
These fish are reef safe and will not bother coral or invertebrates, but may be very aggressive towards other fish.
