Husbandry

(Gill, 1862)

This species inhabits rocky inshore reefs exposed to wave action and currents to depths of 3m - 15m, and is most frequently observed near large boulders in the shallow subtidal zone.

Bumphead damselfish is a highly aggressive, so only to keep in a fish-aquarium, but better left in the wild.

Synonym:
Pomacentrus bairdii Gill, 1862
