    We saw these fish at the Coast of Kwazulu Natal, Margate. Please can you identify it if possible. Sorry for the bad quality photos. It's the best we have.

    Sergeant mayor damsel. Yes very agro. Only one per tank. Gets upto 15 to 17cm
    All juveniles are male. Then you could keep more than one. But as soon as one change into a woman, all hell breaks loose. Also agro against other damsel species.
