This Sergeant Damselfish gets its name from the striping across its back that resembles the black bars of a Sergeant Major’s military insignia. Males and females are nearly identical making breeding in captivity difficult. It will eat an omnivorous diet consisting of small inverts, quality flake foods, and frozen meaty foods.
Sergeant Major Damsels can be a bully in a community reef tank to peaceful species but the Damsel is generally reef safe. The Sergeant Major will feed on most aquarium foods and adapt well to most saltwater fish tanks.
