Damselfish might be small but they are still popular with our divers and snorkellers. Some of the Damselfish juveniles have a vivid colouration that’s quite distinct from their drab parents.

Whitebelly Damsel; Amblyglyphidodon leucogaster

Also known as the Yellow-belly Damselfish which seems a more appropriate name.

Lagoon Damsel; Hemiglyphidodon plagiometopon

Another Damselfish with a very different coloured juvenile form. Also quite territorial and fearless.

Behns Damselfish; Neoglyphidodon nigroris

Adults a drab brown with a yellowish tail; juveniles bright yellow with black stripes.

Silver Damsel; Neopomacentrus anabatoides

These small fish can form such large groups that they hide the reef from view!

Chinese Damsel, Neopomacentrus bankieri

Silvery grey in colour with the distinctive yellow tail. Probably not N. azysron as we guessed before.

Neon Damsel; Pomacentrus coelestis

Many divers ask what the beautiful little blue fish are - Neon Damsel is an appropriate name

Lemon Damselfish; Pomacentrus moluccensis

A small, easily recognisable, reef dwelling Damsel.

Other Damselfish

Banded, Blue, Jewel, Staghorn and Whitetail Damselfish.
