Decide if you really want a damsel. A lot of people are unfamiliar with the fact that when you add one by themselves to the tank for a few weeks to cycle the tank, they think it's theirs and theirs alone. They'll try to kill any new fish. Trying to get a damsel out of a tank with rock is almost futile. A damsel is not necessary to cycle a tank.

do a fishless or live rock cycle if you arent doing a species only tank with damsels. If you really want them you should add them last with other aggressive fish to prevent violence.
