The Green Chromis, species of damselfish, is indigenous to the Indo-Pacific region. This species from the family Pomacentridae is found in large aggregation above Acropora corals in sheltered areas such as lagoons and reef flats. The Green Chromis has slender, elongated, oval bodies with an iridescent sheen and forked tail. As it swims under the aquarium lighting, the Green Chromis shows a mesmerizing shimmer that will make your aquarium more captivating. The Green Chromis is one of the mellowest and most peace loving fish of its entire family, therefore they are very safe to keep in tanks. They look splendid in school, and exquisite in a well lit aquarium. The Green Chromis fish are active swimmers and spend most of their time in the upper to mid-levels of an aquarium during the day. They are very easy to maintain and does not require much care or time. A good assortment of live rock will make them feel right at home. The Green Chromis is a great addition in your tank because of its peaceful nature and for its unique color. If you have created a perfect biotope for this fish, you may be lucky enough to see them spawn. The male will prepare a nest in the sand, in which several females of the species will share. Once fertilized, the male will guard the nest until the eggs hatch and encourage water flow by fanning the nest. Eggs that are not fertilized or showing no signs of hatching will be eaten by the male. The Green Chromis is a great addition in your tank because of its peaceful nature and for its unique color, thus making a very valuable addition to your home tank.

The Green Chromis is very popular due to its peaceful and schooling nature. These fish are light green in color with a forked tail and do well in the home aquarium. They do best when kept in groups.Damselfishes provide an important link both as reef forage fishes and aldo excellent beginner marine aquarium specimens. Their extensive use is well-warranted considering their diversity, beauty and tolerance of chemical and physical conditions, gregariousness when crowded and general compatibility with fishes and invertebrates. Most damselfish species accept all types of food eagerly and are very disease resistant.Damselfish are often used to break in or cycle a new aquarium. It is important to remember that even though these fish are hardy and can handle the adverse conditions of a new aquarium, they may become quite aggressive among themselves, and toward other tankmates. Most of these fish stay in small shoals in the wild when young, breaking away from the group as they grow, and eventually become solitary as adults. When dealing with several Damsels in one aquarium, plenty of rockwork and hiding places are necessary in order to keep quarrels to a minimum. The Chromis are a genus of Damsels that are schooling fish. They do well in an aquarium in groups of the same species.No significant markings or distinguishing characteristics differentiate males from females. Damselfish can be successfully spawned in an aquarium. The male Damsel is usually responsible for the care and maintenance of the eggs after the fish have spawned.They are generally compatible with: Dwarf Angelfish, Large Angelfish, Anthias, Basslets, Blennies, Boxfish, Clownfish, Goatfish, Gobies, Hawkfish, Hogfish, Parrotfish, Pseudochromis, Puffers, Tangs & Surgeons and Wrasse.Caution is required with: Anglers & Frogfish, Batfish, Butterflyfish, Cardinalfish, Damselfish, Filefish, Grunts & Sweetlips, Squirrelfish and Triggerfish.They are not compatible with: Eels, Groupers, Lionfish & Scorpionfish, Seahorses & Pipefish and Sharks & Rays.Photo by Saltwaterfish.com member, ElitePhoto: Jerry Hague
