Regarded as an active and peaceful fish, the Blue Reef Chromis generally stay in the upper part of the tank. The scientific name of the fish is Chromis Cyaneus. There are two names by which it is commonly known as Blue Reef Chromis and Blue Chromis. It is considered better to call this the Blue Reef Chromis, as then it will be easier to distinguish from Blue Green Chromis. This is considered a shoaling fish that can be kept in a group, in a tank of 30 gallons or more space. As the Blue Reef Chromis is an omnivore, it accepts a range of meaty items, flaked food along with herbivore preparations. If you feed the Blue Reef Chromis with vitamin-enriched items, it will aid in preserving its vibrant color. It is easy to take care of the Blue Reef Chromis, therefore it makes an apt addition for all novice saltwater hobbyists. The minimum tank size for keeping this fish of up to 5 inches should be around 30 gallons. The Blue Reef Chromis exhibits a brilliant blue tone, and is accentuated with jet black trims. As these are a schooling fish, the Blue Reef Chromis will work well, when placed in groups of five and more. Keeping this species can be a little difficult in the home tank. While certain specimens are considered peaceful, some can turn a bit problematic towards this Blue Chromis. Residing mostly in the upper half of the water column, the species take pleasure from having ample of horizontal swimming room. The Blue Reef Chromis stay just within inches above the coral reefs, shoaling with each other close to a live rock. If you are yearning for some flashy species to keep at the top of your aquarium, then the Blue Reef Chromis will be perfect for you. The Blue Reef Chromis can easily be housed within reef and community tanks without any problem.
