In my experience damsels are awful. I've had 2 and they both ate my zoas. They are on my terrorist watch list! lol

I have a blue damsel and I was of the same opinion however mine is super docile. Maybe I lucked out or he just gave up with my powder blue, yellow tang and regal tang ha ha. Why can’t you keep him?

This one is seems to be pretty docile and has not bothered anything. Having only 1 eye it just swims in circles watching outwards.

The fish came with a group of fish I bought and I just don't want the bio load of a fish the doesent "do a job"
It would be a great fish for someone who has a new tank and just finished cycle to build bacteria for a few months then pass along.

ya I guess I could.... they would probably just toss him tho.
I thought someone with a new tank setup could put him to use building bio before adding expensive fish.

id trade him for just about anything, frag plugs, shells, egg crate whatever.

IMO his small size won’t add very much to your bioload. He is used to your tank and I would be worried that he would be bullied when added to a new tank.

What size eggcrate do you need. I have some leftover i think.
I'm not desperate for a one eyed damsel but I'd hate to see the guy get neglected or tossed out. I have a smaller tank with a couple small clowns in it...dunno how he'd fair with them
