This pretty little Black-and-gold Chromis will loose it's black stripes as it becomes an adult. Then it has a brownish body with just it's back third being yellow!
You will often see the juvenile Black-and-gold Chromis or Behm's Damsel sale in a pet store. They are quite unique and attractive with their black and yellow striping! They are an inexpensive and hardy little fish.
This video starts out with a yellow juvenile, then moves on to a dark adult with yellow toward the back of the body. Looks like they are inhabiting a Bird's Nest Coral. They become very mean as they grow to their ultimate 5" size, and need a minimum tank size of 55 gallons due to their need to swim about much more than others in their family. Their longer body and forked tail provide them with the speed they need!

Foods: All kinds. See maintenance above.
