Tips on Golden Damselfish Care

The damselfish gold or Amblyglyphidodon aureus belongs to the family Pomacentridae. The family comprises 28 genus and 360 species. It includes all damselfish and clownfishes. The population was established by young golden women extending from the western Pacific to the East Indian Ocean south to the Great Barrier Reef. These are coral reefs that occupy a depth of 30 to 150 feet.

The Gold Empress has a round body, dorsal fin, and branched tail features from its group. The bright yellow pallets are accented with electric blue vertical stripes on the upper and lower body areas. Coloring has a tendency to fade when the fish matures. Damselfish gold is marketed under various aliases including damselfish, lime damsel, lemonpeel girl and gold girl.

This is a very durable and quite aggressive species. The ability to compete with various environmental parameters makes it an excellent choice for an inexperienced aquarist. Fish stamina and low price tags often lead to it being used as a biological stabilizer in the new aquarium cycling. If a girl thrives in a newly established aquatic environment, then it is risky to add a lower constitutional species to the aquarium. In coral reefs, they will not disturb the anchor population or eat your decorative crust.

Naturally it makes its home amidst gorgonian fans and black coral trees. This will create the perfect setting for the golden girl fish in the coral tank. The species is up to 5 inches long as an adult. Note that when choosing a teammate. Although it is very angry compared to many damselfish species, it should not be placed on smaller species that are more fearful. Introducing this fish to a predetermined population or equivalent to other species that you want to keep in your aquarium will reduce aggressive behavior. A minimum tank size of 30 gallons is recommended.

The golden boy is an omnivore. In natural habitats, their diet consists of zooplankton. This fish is easy to bring to aquarium life. They are not eater and examples of problems that make them start eating in their new environment are rare. They will eat common slabs formulated for sea omnivores. But like any other marine species, a variety of diets will help maintain general health and maintain dye. Shrimp supplemented with vitamins is a good supplement. They should also be provided with many live stones to maintain.

Damselfish are consecutive hermaphrodites. They were all born as men. If a group of men are introduced to the aquarium along with the dominant group the group will experience increased morphological hormones until they change into sex. This is a common characteristic of all hermaphroditic marine species. Nature will ensure that both genders are present in the population to insure species prorogation. These Damsels are known to breed in captivity. The boys will instinctively guard the newly fertilized eggs until they hatch.
