Rolland's Demoiselle

(Chrysiptera rollandi)

Chrysiptera Damselfish should be added to well established aquariums with plenty of room to swim. Plenty of rock work should be provided for grazing and hiding. Chrysiptera Damselfish may pick at small benthic crustaceans. Chrysiptera Damselfish are quite easy and hardy they make good beginner fish. Be sure to thoroughly research each species as some Chrysiptera Damselfish are known to be quite territorial and aggressive. They should be housed with large tank mates that are not easily harrassed. A diet of meaty and algae based foods which includes Spirulina should be provided. Males and females are difficult to differentiate however males tend to be slightlyly larger.

The Rolland's Demoiselle are also known as the Pink Demoiselle. Occasionally seen in the aquarium trade. The Rolland's Demoiselle coloration may depend on where the fish is collected from. Their colors range from having a yellow to gray black forehead, some may have a wide black stripe close to their forehead, and body color from white to yellow. They can grow to almost 3".

We recommend a minimum aquarium size of 30 gallons or larger for this species.
