    Aren't Damsels a little more defined with more black colouring? Or is this what a young one looks like?

    Chrysiptera glauca. Quite common from Mission Rocks northwards with a few strays down south. Caught a tiny juvenile for Matlock in TK a few weeks back. They're not tooooo bad as damsels go, but still fairly nasty. Adults don't look too good either.

    This Damsel as a juvie is very bright coloured and has a few line markings on it's face, but grows quick and is aggro big time!!!:(
