The Humbug or Dascyllus aruanus is a popular saltwater aquarium fish from the Pomacentridae family of Damselfish. Considered to be quite hardy, this fish is a great choice for beginners. It goes by a couple different names in the aquarium trade including the Three Striped Damsel and the White-tailed Damselfish.
Humbug are found in the Indian and Pacific oceans and can grow to about 3" (75mm) in length. These fish can easily be identified by the three black bars that run across their bodies and their white tails. They are the hardiest of the Damselfish. Chopped meats, flake food and frozen foods as well as algae will keep the Humbug happy and healthy. Be careful they need plenty of room when kept with similar species.
