    Is it ok to only have one in a tank with other fish or do they have to be in small groups
  3. General Reef Discussion
    I have a 29gal biocube with a purple firefish, green chromis, and a starry blenny. These guys have formed a pretty tight bond and finished off a flasher wrasse about a month ago and I've been pretty nervous about adding anything else in. But the flame hawk is the fish we've been working up to...

    Anyone have or ever had a Blue reef chromis?? I'm considering one or two for my 36g. Are they ok by themselves or do they need a group? Current stock is 2 clowns and a royal gramma.

    Hey guys I bought 3 Blue/Green reef chromis about two weeks ago and they have now dwindled down to one. I found the two always in the morning just laying on the bottom. My water parameters are normal and I know that chromis have a tendency to do this. My question is should I bring this one...

    So I have been interested in having a group of fish recently, but am having a hard time deciding on anything. I know most fish don't "school" in aquara like they do in the wild, but I think a group of fish would help complete the "reefyness" of my tank. My tank is 120 gallons with a 30 gallon...

    Hi, I have a tank and am looking into some other fish. For the clown fish I only feed them pellets. I am looking at Chromis's and Basslet's and was wondering if they will just eat the same pellets or if I need to feed them different food?

    Hey, I just bought a small green chromis for my 20gal. He has been doing absolutely great the past 2 days, swimming actively with the clowns and on his own. Bright coloration on him. Went to work today and came home to finding him hiding in a corner at the surface of the tank and looks like he...

    I just started volunteering at a state park as an animal care helper. This fish came from a roughly 500+ gallon FO tank. In the tank there's 7 other blue reef chromis, a French angelfish, some kind of smaller angelfish (I forget what kind), an Atlantic blue tang, and a couple of other...

    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...

Sunday i saw him hiding in one of the caves in the morning. I also noticed two white circles on the fish. . went golfing Sunday and...

    So my new Kole Tang came down with Ich after having him for 3 days. Anyhow today he started swimming up and getting in the middle of the chromis school and stretching out his fins for the Chromis to pic at his scales. Anyone ever heard or seen this?

    Hi, I recently started a 65 gallon FOWLR tank. I cycled it with live rock, and the lfs guy said the water was perfect (salinity/ammonia/nitrites/nitrates/) (but the PH was a tad low) to put the fish in. So I bought three blue/green chromis and drip acclimated them for an hour and 15 minutes...

    Hey guys. I added three small blue-green Chromis to my 75 gallon tank yesterday. They've been sticking together and haven't moved much beyond the corner of the tank, but I figured that's just them getting used to it. What's worrying me is that they're not accepting the food I'm giving them. I...

    I have noticed 2 out of the 4 chromis I have acting a little strange the past couple days. Are they a pair? Going to mate? I read up on it and found they will flash these colors when they are either stressed, or pairing up. The one in the single picture you cannot really tell (seriously, the...
