Of Special Note - The Fiji Blue Devil Damselfish is a popular fish for saltwater aquariums since it is very hardy and can survive some of the worst water conditions. It also has very striking blue coloration that makes it one of the best looking damselfish available. Unfortunately, it is very aggressive and will readily attack any other fish in the aquarium.
The Fiji Blue Devil Damselfish should be kept only with other aggressive fish or large fish since it will probably attack and kill other fish of similar or smaller size. It can be kept in groups if introduced at the same time, but may attack newcomers. It prefers a tank of at least 30 gallons since it is an active swimmer.
