They are still basically the same damsel in a slightly different colour scheme but I prefer the slightly smaller, more yellow appearance of the azure (that and I've never had anything approaching a 450 gallons so space is limited).
There is a lovely species which is a mix of the two, has the same temprement and is becoming more common.
