Azure demoiselle

Chrysiptera hemicyanea, also known as Azure Damselfish or half-blue damselfish is a popular saltwater aquarium fish from the Indo-Pacific.

The Azure demoiselle lives in the reef-associated, non-migratory, marine, depth range 1 - 38 m environment.

The Azure Demoiselle or Azure Damsel is one of several bright blue damselfish that sport a striking yellow or golden accent as part of their coloration. In the Aquarium hobby this damsel is often confused with the Yellow-tail Damsel C. parasema, as they look very similar. More

An excellent pet, the Azure Demoiselle is easy to keep, hardy, and disease resistant. This lovely damsel is often available and reasonably priced. It will work equally well in a fish only tank or a reef aquarium. More
