The Blue Chromis is a very peaceful and active fish from the Caribbean. These fish reside in the upper part of the aquarium and will help bring out more shy species that normally hide. A shoaling fish, Blue Chromis should be maintained together in a group, and make a bright addition to the reef or fish only aquarium that is 30 gallons or larger. The Blue Chromis feeds on a variety of meaty items, herbivore preparations, and flaked food.

The diet should be varied and consist of meaty items, herbivore flakes, and frozen preparations. Using vitamin-enriched foods may help to preserve the bright color.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small 1/2" to 1-1/4", Medium 1 1/4" to 2 1/4", Large 2 1/4" to 3 1/4"

Customer Testimonials

Richard L Corpus Christi , TX
Mine was a very deep blue color, unlike the picture. Mine were dark blue and black. Nice looking fish, and very peaceful. They stay together for the most part.
Jennifer T Santa Maria , CA
We love our blue reef. We had been seeking one for over a year and bought one from Live Aquaria, he's awesome! Thanks a bunch! He doesn't get along too well with our green chromis, I don't know why.
Josh P Bay City , MI
Great fish. Arrived in good condition and is thriving in the DT after QT. Nice blue color, just like in the picture, without the aggressive behavior of damsels.
