The Agile Chromis electrifies marine aquariums with an unexpected flash of color. This handsome chromis shares all the attractive personality and easy care of the extremely popular Blue/Green Reef Chromis but with a bold color combination. The majestic, golden yellow body color of the Agile Chromis is the perfect backdrop highlighting the exhilarating violet pink flashes around the mouth. A school of Agile Chromis will immediately transform any large fish only, or reef aquarium into a note-worthy setup.

The hardy Agile Chromis boasts 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 Agile Chromis will generally ignore other fish, invertebrates or corals, some may demonstrate territorial behavior towards its own kind or similar-sized fish. The Agile Chromis is best kept in small groups of 3 or more comprised of odd numbered fish. House in suitably-sized systems with peaceful tank mates.

The diet of the Agile 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 1/2" to 1"; Medium 1" to 2"; Large 2" to 3"
