    Are all marine fish this difficult to catch?

    How the heck am I supposed to catch a damsel that keeps on darting into the rocks?
    This really seems like an impossible task!

    All seem a little happier now.
    And all see to be able to enjoy the rocks.
    Just feel very sorry for the little guy in the sump.

    Should have taken out the black end white damsel as well...

    Anyway, just keep an eye on him as well

    I would have thought so as well as theory suggests they tend to be very aggressive. Even more so than the white damsel. However, this one seems quite relaxed and minds his own business.

    Its amazing to see now, that the 4 stripe damsel and the rollands damsel do some very weird dance every now and again when they meet up.
