blue green chromis

  1. General Reef Discussion
    I need your expert opinion. I purchased 3 blue green chromis and a firefish to add to my 75 gallon reef tank. Placed them in quarantine tank and the more aggressive member of the chromis harassed all the other fish to death. Within a week he was alone and has been alone in quarantine for 3...

    So I've had five blue green chromis in my 75 gallon tank for about 6 months. I've heard of a sort of pecking order that they display in groups but have never noticed very much aggressive behavior between them. Recently one of the chromis dissapeared (one of the larger ones). Now one of the...

    Hi guys, Hopefully you can ID what killed my chromis. Pretty gutted about it as it was one of the first fish i had. It was the smaller of the initial chromis I added and was resigned to hanging around the live rock and edges of the tank. Currently have 1 chromis (did have 3, went down to 2...

    My wife has decided that she would like to see some Blue Green Chromis in the tank so I think it is a wonderful idea. :) We have a 56 gallon tank with 2 clownfish, a 6-line wrasse and 2 Banjaii Cardinals. I'm thinking about adding 3 Chromis to the tank but keep reading about the need to get 5...

    I have 2 small blue green chromis's, one small yellow watchman goby, about 5 hermits, and one lawnmower blenny... My tank seems kinda empty and I want something nice but hardy. Possibly something that isn't shy, good personality and won't hurt other fish. I have a 30 gallon nano any feedback is...

    Here's to hoping this is in the right area... So I'm trying to get some Chromis to survive in my tank right now. I've currently lost two into the void (seriously, no body or anything, I have absolutely no clue where they went even after moving around the tank contents), and I fear for the other...

  8. General Reef Discussion
    I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this situation. I have 2 blue green chromis that were very active and always swimming out front for a very long time. I started with 3 but one of them died, either way after the other one passed they seemed to do just fine. I started adding...

    so i have a group of 4 blue green chromis in my 75 gallon FOWLR (soon to be reef), i had 5 but 1 died last night(it was the smallest so im assuming the "pecking order" came into effect there). I was wondering whether or not if i picked up a blue reef chromis whether it would school with my...

    Hey guys, I just added a Chromis to my tank and I need some help with determining if he is healthy. I think he might have Ich? He looked perfect at my LFS, shimmering and vibrant, also active. When I added him to my tank after a 3 minute drive home he was active and still as vibrant albeit a...

    Hi All, I am new here so if this is not the right place to post this, please don't yell too loudly. I love crabs. I have had 2 emerald crabs and a porcelain crab. All three have died. :-( At first I thought it was because my tank was too new (only 7 months) but I would supplement the...

    i just got some Zoanthids and polyps to ad to my 55 gallon setup. Do I need to change my feeding practices and also change to a reef salt mix? What kind of care other than light do they need. Also would a Blue Hippo Tang (Dory) be to much for my Tank? Current setup: 55 gallon ( All water...

    has anyone owned the berlin turbo classic and if so, does it work well?
  17. Reefing Equipment
    What would be a good inexpensive filter setup for a 55 gal reef tank that I just started to build. I currently have a small refugium/skimmer HOB setup(aquatraders.com small kit) that doesn't seem to work very well. Any ideas?
  18. General Reef Discussion
    I want opinions on what would be the best skimmer available for a budding 55 gallon tank setup. My refugium is putting alot of small air bubbles back into the tank making it look kind of cloudy. Also, how much flow is required in the tank. Thanks 48" long 55 gallon 260watt combo...

    I was thinking about getting a small school of fish for my reef tank. What works well with other fish, corals, and would work in a 100g tank? Thanks for your thoughts.

    The clown has to go. I'm so tired of being nipped at when I'm working in my tank. Hubby got him for me for my b'day and I think he's bummed. However, that thing is really taking the joy out of this hobby for me. I got a handful of new frags the other day and I've been trying to move them around...
