    hi guys and girls. i recieved a fish from a friend who had been diving and i not sure what it is (im thinking a type of damsel) i have put it in my 280 litre tank and it seems very happy. it eats the fish food i feed my other fish, how ever it seems to be losing its colour. could it be sick or am i doing something wrong ? my other clown fish are all healthy and colourful. please help if you can.

    Goes dull in captivity as well when it grows bigger. Terror to have in tank.

    Chrysiptera leucopoma. Common noob mistake to catch these. Grows into this and changes it's name to Satan:
