    They died all except this one. The store said I can cycle the tank with the damsels so I got them but now I find out that I should not put them in. I am definitely learning

    Damsels are okay to cycle with but from my understanding once the cycle is done you must remove them if you are going to put anything else in...seems they are not the nicest of neighbors

    Sorry that some of your fish died. :( I thought that damsels is a really hardy saltwater fish also. I don't have a clue in how to cycle a saltwater tank (except for using pure ammonia), but you've all ready have a fish in the tank. Sorry, wish I could be of more help. Tetra has a product called safe start (I've used it twice & worked for me both times), but i believe it's for freshwater only. If I come across anything that may help you out, I'll be sure and let you know.
