The Blue Green Reef Chromis is easy to care for beautiful and also peaceful.
They tend to be one of the preferred marine reef fish regardless of experience level.
This member of the Pomacentridae family is most recognizable by its light blue dorsal side which slowly fades into a pale green belly.
The chromi also has a peaceful demeanor allowing it to be kept with almost all other community fish, invertebrates, and corals.
In the home aquarium, the Blue Green Reef Chromis does best actively swiming all levels of the aquarium water column. In fact, small schools of the Blue Green Reef Chromis add a dazzling and dramatic shimmer of beauty to almost any well-established reef system.
Overall, the Blue Green Reef Chromis is very hardy and can live between 8 to 15 years in aquariums with excellent water quality.
For best care, feed several times throughout the day with a varied diet of meaty foods, herbivore flakes, and frozen preparations. Vitamin-enriched foods may also help to preserve body colorations.
Some aquarists have successfully bred the Blue Green Reef Chromis in the home aquarium. Interestingly, the body color of mature males, ready to nest, changes to a muted yellow color. However, breeding success requires perfect water parameters in only the largest of non-predatory aquarium systems.
