The Ultimate Reefing Fish: Chromis


Chromis are perhaps the ultimate reef fish. Generally peaceful, most species are easy to take care of and quite colourful, that looks beautiful in your aquariums. Like Anthias, they school, but in many cases this tendency disappears as they age. Like Damsels and Anemone fish, their close cousins, Chromis are omnivores and eat almost every food. A flake staple is usually sufficient, but for best color and health, supplement them with frozen and live foods when possible.

The varieties of Chromis for your reef aquarium are:
