Tuxedo Damselfish (Chrysiptera tricincta)

The Tuxedo Damselfish or Chrysiptera tricincta gets its name from the distinct black and white stripes that adorn this fish's body. These saltwater fish are often kept as pets, and are considered to be on of the easiest fish to take care of. Tuxedo Damselfish were first discovered near Fiji and are not very large, only reach lengths of about 3". In the wild they are often found in the Western Pacific Ocean in shallow waters around reefs or corals.

As known as the Threeband Damselfish, these fish can survive in a rather small aquarium. One about 30 gallons or more will do just fine. As with a lot of other Damselfish, providing plenty of hiding spaces is crucial to keeping this fish happy and healthy. The following water conditions are recommended, 72-78° F, dKH 8-12, pH 8.1-8.4 and sg 1.020-1.025.Tuxedo Damselfish are omnivores that should be fed a variety of foods including flake food, brine shrimp and seaweed. They can become increasingly aggressive as they get older, but placing them in a tank with other similarly aggressive fish should work well.  If you have any additional care tips for the Tuxedo Damselfish please leave us a comment below.
