Azure Damselfish (Chrysiptera hemicyanea)

The Azure Damselfish or Chrysiptera hemicyanea is a fast fish with a striking appearance. A very popular aquarium fish, it is half bright blue and half yellow. This saltwater fish originates in the Indo-Pacific area and is commonly found in fairly shallow waters around reefs. In an aquarium setting a tank of at least 30 gallons is recommended for just one Azure Damselfish. They do work well in a group, but you need to provide a bigger tank with plenty of hiding spaces. Also known as the Half-blue Damselfish, this fish is an omnivore that can be fed flakes and meaty foods like shrimp. A temperature of 72-78° F and PH of 8.1-8.4 is recommended for this type of aquarium fish. These fish are great for beginners as they only grow to about 4" in length, are reasonably priced and fairly disease resistant.
