    Well firstly I have three blue Chromis in my tank. Two smaller ones and then one which is almost 50% bigger than the other two. The big one looks as if he / she is protecting white spots attached to some LR and Coral in the tank.

    Are the Chromis common spawners and what are the chances of the babies hatching?

    I have heard somewhere that this sort of behavior is a good sign of the state of ones tank :whistling:

    Very common for them to spawn in a tank but not easy to raise. Dont know of anyone here that managed to get it right or even try for that matter.

    Mine spawn all the time but I have never seen any babies. The male will guard the eggs for about three days and then forget about them.

    So I would be correct in saying the big Chomis is the male then :whistling:

    You will notice the dominant male's colour changes to a blueish/copper colour. He appears darker than the rest of the chromis and is way more agressive.
