Overview

The Barrier Reef Chromis, sometimes called the Yellow-back Puller or Shining Puller is found in schools throughout the Coral Sea. This fish exhibits a dark stripe that runs diagonally from the eye to dorsal fin. Above this stripe, the fish is yellow, and below it is silver.

It is a very hardy fish found in a variety of aquariums. It is commonly kept long term, in small schools, and is a great candidate for the reef aquarium. It is a peaceful fish, and adds a dramatic effect to the tank. The Barrier Reef Chromis will live from 8-15 years in an aquarium in water of good quality.

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.
