Stegastes partitus - Bicolor Damselfish

Stegastes partitus - Bicolor Damselfish Photo courtesy: Geoff Schultz

Like its name implies, the bicolor damselfish has both a dark and a light-colored section. Although the fore-body is usually black, there are a variety of pale color variations near the tail and the boundary between the two often varies. Bicolored damselfish typically grow to less than 4 inches. They feed on zooplankton in the water column above coral reefs, to depths of 80 feet.

Western Atlantic: including southern Florida (USA), Bahamas, and the Caribbean. Probably extending to Brazil


Habitat
Reef-associated; non-migratory; marine; depth range 0 - 100 m


Diet
Feeds primarily on algae but also on polychaetes, hydroids, copepods and ascidians.


Quick Fact
Male bicolor damselfish will aggressively defend territories, especially when watching over eggs.
