Humbug Aruanus

Humbug Damsel

The Humbug Aruanus is also called the Humbug Dasyllus and Striped Damselfish. It is found in tropical Indo-Pacific from the Red Sea to Southern Australia. This fish is hardy and inexpensive and thus a good choice for a beginner.

Males are 4 in., females 3.1 in. Wrasses or other Damsels can be aggressive. The minimum size tank is 66 gal. Feed this fish 3 times a day with a varied diet, including meaty items, flake food and herbivore preparations. Juveniles do well in a community tank, but adults may be too boisterous. Adults should be kept in male-female pairs. They prefer aquariums with plenty of coral growing in them.
