    Please Id this Fish. Is it agro or can I keep it with other small fish? I think it changes color when it gets to be an adult because I haven’t seen any adult fish like this, if this is so what do they look like as adults.

    Did you catch the fish in the first pic or buy it (and if so, where did that shipmet come from?)

    It local. Caught it off Ballito.
    I see them from time to time, but never bigger that 4cm. The one in the Pic is about 2cm

    not entirely sure but i think it is a twin spot damsel. loses its colours as it ages to become a very boring brown. then, like any other damsel it will become quite agro towards newer/smaller fish.

    i know, i caught 2 once also thinking 'how cool are these!!' became a hassle when they grew up...
