    I have just introduced a fire goby to my tank but the orangetail seems to be harrassing him constantly. Do I remove the orange tail or will things settle. If I need to remove him then there is 1 orangetail going free as I only have a nano tank. Suggestions please?

    Move the rockwork. The damsel was first, and it setup its own territory. Move all the rocks, and create a new place...

    Have you introduced it while the lights are on ? My yellowtail blue damsel harassed everything I put into the tank but if I introduced it at night after the lights were out for some reason all was fine the next day when the lights came on again. Perhaps I have just been lucky.

    I only buy 100% reefsave fish that is not aggro. Damsels are not on my list.
