Bicolor damselfish are native to the Caribbean Sea and the western Atlantic Ocean. In fact, they’re the most abundant member of their genus, Stegaste, in the Caribbean! Bicolored damselfish can be found dwelling in the crevices of coral and rocky reefs.
Adult bicolored damselfish can grow to a length of approximately four inches. They eat plankton, which isn’t typical for members of their genus—most other damselfish feed on algae.
Male bicolor damselfish will aggressively defend their territory, especially when they’re guarding their unhatched eggs.
