overview
The Lightning Double Bar Chromis, electrifies marine aquariums with an unexpected flash of color. This handsome chromis shares all the attractive features of the extremely popular Blue/Green Reef Chromis but with a bold color combination. The steely, gray-blue body color of the Lightning Double Bar Chromis is the perfect backdrop highlighting the exhilarating yellow streaks that begin at the peduncle (base of the tail) and trail along the top and bottom margins of its forked tail. This eye-catching color combination dramatically accentuates the swallowtail appearance of the caudal fin to impart a touch of elegance to this attractive fish. A school of Lightning Double Bar Chromis will immediately transform any large fish only, or reef aquarium into a note-worthy setup.

The hardy Lightning Double Bar Chromis boast ease of care and a peaceful demeanor making it an excellent choice for new and experienced aquarists. This native of the Indo-Pacific reefs prefers setups with open areas for swimming but with multiple hiding places. The Lightning Double Bar Chromis will generally ignore other fish, invertebrates or corals, some may demonstrate territorial behavior towards its own kind or similar-sized fish. The Lightning Double Bar Chromis is best kept in small groups of 3 or more comprised of odd numbered fish. House in suitably-sized systems with peaceful tankmates.

The diet of the Lightning Double Bar Chromis should be varied and consist of meaty items, herbivore flakes, and frozen preparations. Vitamin-enriched foods may also help to preserve body coloration.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 3/4" to 1-1/4"; Medium: 1-1/4" to 2-1/4"; Large: 2-1/4" to 3-1/4" X Large 3-1/4" to 5"
