The Green Chromis, Chromis viridis, is a species of damselfish indigenous to the Indo-Pacific region. This species from the family Pomacentridae is found in large aggregations above Acropora corals in sheltered areas such as lagoons and reef flats. The Green Chromis has slender, elongated, oval bodies with an iridescent green sheen and forked tail. As it swims under the aquarium lighting, the Green Chromis shows a mesmerizing shimmer that will provide a flash of brilliance in your aquarium. The Green Chromis is mellow as the most peaceful damsel and are safe for any home aquarium. They look splendid in schools, 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.

I bought 3 juveniles that were more green, but as they aged and received more frozen food, they turned blue. One of them will occasionally hide. Very peaceful and eager to eat.

The fish was shipped extremely well, and it was a perfect addition to my reef tank. I acclimated according to the instructions, and I have had no problems with any of the fish I have received. What more can you ask for? Cheaper then my local fish store and it was delivered to my front door the next day.

I love the green chromis! They are very good with the other fish in the aquarium, and they love the baby brine shrimp!
