Hey guys
I have heard of certain damsel fish being peaceful, is this true? I would like to keep a damsel because of their color, but im afraid of them killing my clowns. Thanks

It's not so much them growing huge as territory issues. (Although some of them do get big.) For the most part, unless you have a huge tank, one mated pair of clowns is the best most folks can manage. I'm actually surprised your 3 are getting along and haven't killed each other yet.

I agree with Doug - don't add damsels. Chromis might be an option, though. (Damsels are mean, ornery fish. PITA, really. Wouldn't recommend them, considering the weath of other, colorful peaceful fish out there.)
