    I got 2 of these damsels. A mated pair.

    They are about 2 to 3 times longer than a normal blue yellow tail damsel. A lot darker velvet blue.

    No real territory as with normal BYT. Swim all over. Do not bother other fish, ok, in my system they are the smaller fish. Only coral beauty is an issue as Coral beauty take them on one on one, but together they stand their ground. Think its more due to the coloration. The male is slightly smaller than a grown out coral beauty.

    They do go around as blue yellow tail damsels, but they are not.

    Anybody got the proper name for them?
