    A friend of mine has a mature set up with among others a Scopus Tang,Green Chromis etc.
    Recently he introduced a Copperband to control the aiptasia and the Tang chased the Copperband all over.
    The four Green Chromis started shielding the Copprband and even attacked the Tang when he came close to the Copperband.

    Is this normal behaviour concerning the Chromis or are they just not into this bullying thing?

    As soon as he captures a pic or even a video I'll load it.

    Interesting think maybe those chromis just don't like bullying. Awesome story though would really like to see a clip of it though.
