Overview

The Limbaughi Chromis is found in schools throughout the Eastern Central Pacific from Southern California through Mexico. These are wonderful reef fish that resemble the blue damsel when mature, but are much less aggressive. As juveniles, these chromis are blue with a yellow tail. As they mature, they lose the yellow coloration within the tail, and their overall blue coloration darkens to purple.

It is a very hardy fish found in a variety of aquariums. It is commonly kept long term, in small schools, and used by beginners to learn the hobby. It may also be included in larger schools in show tanks. It is a peaceful fish, and adds a dramatic effect to the tank. The Limbaughi 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.
