Fish of the Month: Dascyllus trimaculatus

I thought I’d set this to publish automatically on the 1st of May. Turns out I hadn’t

May’s Fish of the Month is the three-spot dascyllus, Dascyllus trimaculatus. They are very pretty little fish, especially when young, although their markings become less distinct as they get older. They’re often found in groups around small coral heads, occurring from the Red Sea to the Indo-Pacific.
