i just want to point out that if that filter has bio-wheels on it, get rid of them. infact your best bet would be to run it empty ( just for its flow ) or with a pouch of carbon. regular filter floss gets to much debris built up and allows them time to break down into excess nutrients.
although they are active fish 3x daily feedings for a damsel is to much, which will lead to future algae problems. i also would like to inform you that damsels are reef safe but not fish safe IMO and future fish additions are more then likely to get picked on.

Alittle more input would be, that you need a minimum of 30lbs of LR in there for water filtration purposes. This is what keeps your water clean, not using any kind of filter, which do their jobs, but also make for big headaches in the Nitrate department. But on a good note, looks GREAT so far!!
