Domino Damselfish


Species group:
 Damselfish

Other name: Three-Spot Damselfish;
Domino Damsel; Threespot Dascyllus;
Three-spot Dascyllus; Three-spot Humbug

Scientific name: Dascyllus trimaculatus

Country / place of origin: Indo-Pacific, Red Sea

Appearance

Details: The Domino Damselfish is found in the Indo-Pacific Ocean from Australia and Micronesia, to eastern Africa and the Red Sea. They inhabit coral and rocky reefs at depths ranging from 1 - 55 meters.

The Domino Damselfish is a commonly kept marine fish which can tolerate a wide range of water conditions, making it one of the best starter fishes for newly installed tanks. However, while they are physically hardy, Domino Damsels are also very active and become aggressive to tankmates as they mature. They sometimes swim with Anemonefish, and some juveniles even partner with their own anemone. Dascyllus trimaculatus are safe to keep in an invertebrate or reef tank.
