    If you google Sergeant Major Damsel, you will find the same name being applied to different damsels. Depending on where in the world you are. The second picture is what we in South Africa knows as a Sergeant. The first one is also a damsel, which one I do not know.

    First picture might be a juvenile Abudefduf notatis. If it is, they are not aggressive towards other tank mates but they are to their own species. Can only have one per tank. Get up to 150mm about.

    Where did you find it?
