The Neon Velvet Damselfish start out as attractive and hardy displays in the home aquarium, especially when in schools. However, Blue Velvet Damsels are not peaceful community fish and will cause havoc in a saltwater aquarium. Due to their size and attitude these damselfish need to be in a much larger tank than a typical damsel. They can be kept in groups as juveniles, but will fight if the tank is too small.
These fish make excellent companions for aggressive tankmates with other damselfish, dottybacks, angelfish and puffers. Provide plenty of hiding and swimming space for these fish. They are not recommended for reef aquariums where they will share space with peaceful reef inhabitants.
Diet: Neon Velvet Damselfish are omnivores. Offer meaty foods like mysis shrimp, vitamin-enriched brine shrimp, cyclops, finely shredded frozen seafoods, and preparations for omnivores. These foods can be given as freeze dried, frozen, sinking pellets, and flake food.
