Click Here to See ImagesThe Blue Velvet Damsel Neoglyphidodon oxyodonis(previously Paraglyphidodon oxyodonis) is one of the most attractive damselfish as a juvenile. Strikingly colored when young, it has flashy neon electric-blue horizontal stripes dashed across its face and upper body which contrast dramatically with its dark body. It also has a vertical white or yellow bar dividing the body just in front of the dorsal fin. As they grow older however, the stripes fade and the fish become a grayish blue or brown color overall.
