The Sunshine Chromis, also known as the Sunshine Fish, Purple & Yellow Chromis or Olive Chromis. They are found in schools throughout the tropical Western Atlantic Ocean and are a relatively peaceful Damselfish species. The Sunshine Chromis makes a beautiful addition to any aquarists' display. They are yellow across the back, with lavender along the middle portions of the body, with a white pearly appearance along the stomach. 

The Sunshine Chromis is a very hardy fish, and found in a variety of aquariums. It is commonly kept long term in small schools, if provided ample swimming space and room to roam. It is a relatively passive fish that adds a dramatic effect to the reef or fish only aquarium.

Like other Chromis species, these fish are omnivores, and thier diet should be varied and consist of meaty items, herbivore flakes, and high quality frozen preparations. Using vitamin-enriched foods will help to preserve the its color.

Approximate Purchase Size:  Small: 1/2" to 1" Medium: 1" to 2"
