The Yellow Lemon Damselfish species is easily recognised by the golden-yellow colour on the body and the small blue to purple spots that can be found on the face around the eyes and mouth. It can be found living on coral reefs in association with gorgonian fans and black coral trees as it shelters in their branches for protection. They are generally seen to be solitary however they may be encountered in small aggregations feeding on zooplankton a few metres above the bottom. It is generally found at depths from 10 to 45 metres. The Yellow Damselfish grows to a maximum length of approximately 12cm.
Like other damselfish, the Yellow Damselfish are generally compatible with: Dwarf Angelfish, Large Angelfish, Anthias, Basslets, Blennies, Boxfish, Clownfish, Goatfish, Gobies, Hawkfish, Hogfish, Parrotfish, Pseudochromis, Puffers, Tangs & Surgeons and Wrasse.
The Yellow Damselfish are not compatible with Eels, Groupers, Lionfish & Scorpionfish, Seahorses & Pipefish and Sharks & Rays.
The Yellow Damselfish can be kept in temperatures between 72 and 78 degrees. The pH should be 8.4, with specific gravity between 1.020 and 1.025 unless there are invertebrates in the aquarium in which case the lower limit should be 1.022. Water quality should remain high.
