Tropical - Fish - Pictures .com

This is a tropical fish site for all tropical fish enthusiasts from beginner to expert. It has some nice tropical fish pictures and will hopefully have something of interest for all freshwater and marine fish keepers. These tropical fish pages provide some information about some of my favourite fish, along with tropical fish pictures of them. I have kept fish for many years now, ranging from community to marine. Over this period I have been drawn towards catfish, and the cichlids, which I must confess, through there antics have become my favourites. I now keep African and American cichlids, along with some catfish and plecs.

Domino Damsel

Picture of Domino Damsel
Common nameDomino Damsel
SizeThe largest scientifically measured Domino Damsel was 11.0 cm / 4.3 in. The juvenile Domino Damsel is black with bluish scale centres. On the forehead and upper sides you can see white spots against the black background and this is why the fish is commonly known as Domino Damsel.
OriginThe Domino Damsel lives in the Indo-Pacific. Its range stretches from East Africa and the Red Sea to the Line and Pitcairn islands. It has not been encountered in the waters of Hawaii or around the Marquesan islands. Northwards, you can find Domino Damsels up to southern Japan. Southwards, its range proceeds down to Sydney, Australia.
CompatibilityThe Domino Damsel is a hardy fish and considered really easy to care for compared to most other marine fish species. You should however keep in mind that it will become territorial and aggressive as it matures into an adult. It may even bite your hand. Adults are not a good choice for peaceful community aquariums; they should only be kept with fish that can fend for themselves and won’t tolerate any bullying from the Domino. Generally speaking, the Domino Damsel will direct most of its aggressive behaviour towards members of its own species.
MaintenanceThe Domino Damsel needs plenty of hiding spots as well as plenty of open space for swimming.
TemperatureKeep the water temperature around 72-78° F /22-25.5° C.
Water chemistry / movementThe recommended pH-value is 8.1-8.4 and the specific gravity should be in the 1.020-1.025 range.
FeedingIt will readily accept virtually any kind of food in the aquarium, including dry food. Keep it on a varied diet that contains both algae/vegetables and meaty foods.
SexingWe do not know how to sex Domino Damsels based on outer appearance.
BreedingThere are no reports of Domino Damsels being successfully bred in aquariums, but several other species of damsel fish have.
CommentsThe fish species Dascyllus trimaculatus is known under many different names in English, such as Domino Damsel, Domino Damselfish, Domino, Three Spot Damsel, Three Spot Damselfish, Threespot Damsel, Threespot Dascyllus,  Three Spot Dascyllus, Three-Spot Dascyllus, Three-spot Humbug, Whitespot Humbug
