The Starcki Damsel is a good choice for beginners since it is less aggressive and does not need as large of a tank as many of the other damselfish. These damsels are aggressive towards their own kind and only one per aquarium should be kept, unless the aquarium is very large. It will ignore invertebrates in the aquarium and feeds on zooplankton and algae, which makes it a good fish for the reef aquarium.
A varied diet of meaty items such as mysis shrimp and vitamin-enriched brine shrimp should be offered.
