The Honey Head Damselfish, also known as Honey Gregory, has a yellow body with streaks of blue along the dorsal side. An eyespot is present where the blue begins to fade. The yellow body is covered by white dots.

It becomes more aggressive with age. A 30 gallon or larger aquarium with caves in which to hide provides a good environment.

It will need a varied diet of meaty foods, herbivore preparations, and flaked foods.

Like other damselfish, they are generally compatible with: Dwarf Angelfish, Large Angelfish, Anthias, Basslets, Blennies, Boxfish, Clownfish, Goatfish, Gobies, Hawkfish, Hogfish, Parrotfish, Pseudochromis, Puffers, Tangs & Surgeons and Wrasse.

They are not compatible with: Eels, Groupers, Lionfish & Scorpionfish, Seahorses & Pipefish and Sharks & Rays.
