What kind of damsels are they? They tend to get agressive, but I know several people that have them in there tanks with no problems.

this is a yellow tail Damsel, these seem to be the least aggressive.

several species will turn black/grey when they reach maturity.
there is a solid blue Damsel that is longer in the body than the yellow tail their called blue Devils they are exactly that..Devils
Welcome to the box! we look forward to pics:)
