A 30 gallon aquarium or larger with plenty of rockwork and décor is ideal. Because it can tolerate substandard water parameters, it is a popular fish among beginning hobbyists. A small group of juvenile Azure Damsels will add color and drama to most marine aquariums. Maintain this species with other semi-aggressive fish, as they can become territorial as they mature. In larger reef aquariums, this is normally not a problem if plenty of hiding places are provided.
The Azure Damselfish diet should consist of quality flake foods, frozen meaty foods such as brine or mysis shrimp and occasionally dried seaweed offered on a feeding clip.
