Foods and Feeding - Feed a varied diet, fresh, frozen, live, marine fare for carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores. Feed min. 2 times a day.
Reef Compatibility - Excellent.
Captive Care - Keep in groups of odd numbers 5+, single specimens tend to be harassed by tank mates and do not fare as well as a small or large group. Aggression of the dominant specimen will be subdued in a group rather than just a couple specimens. Chromis tend to occupy the upper open water of a captive system and this is a plus for more recluse tank mates, in order to maintain the vibrant coloration offer enriched foods . Will readily acclimate to captivity, keep with less aggressive tank mates, provide adequate swimming space, and feed a varied enriched diet.
