    I got both my maroon clown and my perc clown at the same time so they hopefully wouldn't fight. They haven't since but I don't have an annenome yet either!

    When I got my LR it had some corals on it. Then I got my 1st fish--but I didn't know that the corals were alive I thought they were dead! Boy how dumb can you get. They are still alive and growing.

    How do you tell the sex of a Damsel? I read that they arent a particular sex until they breed. :confused:
    I have 4 lovely little damsels, my first was a yellow tail blue, followed by a blue devil, beau gregory and a ....I think it starts with an "O"? Its red and blue striped.;D

    A couple of damsels... evil little buggers, but fun. That was back when my tank had almost no rock... so much room to swim.

    Guessing same as most people, started with fish, blue and domino damsels, then added live rock. Added other fish. $6 damsels bullying $30 Clowns.
    Had to take out rocks to get out damsels!

    I put in a blue, a four striped and a white tail black damsel in first. Then I put in a coral banded shrimp. Those four started my tank. The three fish eventually died. My coral banded is still with me, except now he is without pincers. He lost them in the transfer from my 75 to the holding tank last week. One dropped off in the 75 and the other dropped off in the holding tank. It will be interesting to see how long it takes for them go grow back. I am guessing four molts.

    For me it was corals, but only by default. The very first rock I bought had zoa's on it. 12 hours later a damsel was added. :)
