The 3-Stripe Damselfish, also known as the Three Striped Damselfish, White-tailed Damselfish, and Humbug Dascyllus, is a popular fish. Three bold black bands are separated by two white bands with a smaller bar of white to offset the tail.

A 30 gallon or larger aquarium is suitable with plenty of hiding places. Due to its aggressive behavior as an adult, it will do well with other moderately aggressive fish in a community tank. It will not harm invertebrates or disturb the tank setting.

The diet of fish such as clownfish, chromis and damsels should consist of a variety of meaty protein rich foods such as Frozen Hikari Mysis Shrimp and Spirulina Brineshrimp as well as high quality dry foods such as Hikari Marine S or Marine A. It is best to feed several small meals several times throughout the day.
