The Giant Jewel Damsel is a monster damselfish, tipping the scales at nearly a foot in length. And, pound for pound, there are few fish in the sea which can rival its pugnacity. These are naturally solitary and territorial creatures. Even divers are not immune from their fishy wrath when entering into their domain. So you can imagine how that translates in the confines of a small glass box. Tankmates must be chosen with care and precision. Think big, think mean groupers, eels, scorpionfishes or, alternatively, try fishes small enough to go unnoticed, like itty bitty gobies and blennies and such.
