Springer’s Damsel (Chrysiptera springeri) is a damsel that many regard as the Flatworm eating damsel. A lot of damsels eat flatworms but this one in particular stays smaller with a max size of about 2 inches. It also lacks the aggressiveness that many damsels display. They will eat prepared foods rather easily and have been known to breed in aquariums.
