The Goldbelly Damselfish is the ideal aquarium inhabitant as it has beautiful colouration; it doesn’t grow very large and is an extremely hardy fish.  Like all damselfish this species also requires hiding places to protect itself from any predators or to dash to if stressed.  Other than that the Blue Devil Damselfish is very easy to keep and maintain.
