The Talbot Damsel, also known as Chrysiptera talboti, is a popular choice for saltwater aquarium enthusiasts. This colorful fish species originates from the Pacific Ocean and is known for its striking blue and yellow coloration.


The Talbot Damsel is a hardy and easy-to-care-for fish that can thrive in a minimum tank size of 30 gallons. They are a peaceful species and can be kept with other peaceful fish, as long as they are not too small and won't be seen as prey. However, they can become territorial and aggressive towards other damsel species and should be kept in a species-specific tank.


These omnivores will eat a variety of foods, including flakes, pellets, and frozen foods. It's important to provide a varied diet to ensure they receive all the necessary nutrients for optimal health.


The Talbot Damsel's unique characteristic is their striking blue and yellow coloration, which is sure to add a pop of color to any saltwater aquarium. They are also known for their active swimming and playful behavior, making them an entertaining addition to any aquarium.
